Photo: Jerry Garcia Documentary Coming in Spring
A three-hour conversation film maker, Malcolm Leo, had with the late – great Jerry Garcia will be the basis of a new feature length documentary reports Deadline.
Leo is a well known and respected music documentarian who conducted the interview back in 1987, at the pinnacle of The Grateful Dead’s leaders success. The documentary will include concert footage, music and the linchpin – never-before seen performances of the group.
The film will also include Garcia’s eldest daughter Annabelle.
Leo who will be working with John Hartmann expects the film to be ready in Spring of 2012. The duo did a teaser, short film clip this last summer for Jerry Garcia Day.
The film attempts to capture Garcia iconic status as head of the ultimate band that was formed in 1965 and disbanded in 1995 when Garcia died, giving their fans 30-years of music memories.
