First Groovy Trailer for Grateful Dead Documentary 'Long Strange Trip'

Written by  FirstShowing

"We're the same as you, you're the same as us." Get ready to rock 'n roll! Amazon Studios has debuted a full-length trailer for the documentary Long Strange Trip, an extensive look into the history and music of the iconic rock band known as the Grateful Dead.

"Artfully assembling candid interviews with the band, road crew, family members and notable Deadheads," director Amir Bar-Lev "reveals the untold history of the Dead and the freewheeling psychedelic subculture that sprouted up around it." Featuring interviews and footage of Jerry Garcia, Mickey Hart, Bill Kreutzmann, Phil Lesh, and Bob Weir; and executive produced by Martin Scorsese. There's lots of footage from their concerts, plus never-before-seen interviews and photos for Dead Heads (and newbies) to enjoy. This premiered at Sundance and also played at SXSW and seems like another definitive music doc for everyone to appreciate, even if you're not the biggest fan. Dive right in.

Here's the official trailer (+ poster) for Amir Bar-Lev's doc Long Strange Trip, originally from Yahoo:
