Music, Money, Madness… Jimi Hendrix Live in Maui chronicles The Jimi Hendrix Experience’s storied July 1970 visit to Maui and reveals how they became ensnared with the ill-fated Rainbow Bridge movie, produced by their controversial manager Michael Jeffery. Featuring never-before-released 16mm color film footage of the afternoon performances — mixed in 5.1 surround sound — the film presents new interviews with firsthand participants and key players such as Billy Cox, Eddie Kramer, Warner Bros. Executives, and several Rainbow Bridge cast members, as well as its director Chuck Wein. Their fascinating account tells the definitive story about one of the most controversial independent films ever made.
