Jimi Hendrix was a guitar god.  It's fitting that the documentary detailing his mind-bending display of guitar mastery at the second Atlanta International Pop Festival in 1970 is entitled "Jimi Hendrix: Electric Church."  The film promises to deliver crucial Hendrix performances from the 1970 show when Jimi was in his element and his prime, plus interviews from some of the founders, pioneers, and biggest stars in rock that he touched.

The interview reel features some heavy hitters: Paul McCartney, Steve Winwood, Metallica's Kirk Hammett, Rich Robinson from the Black Crowes, and scores of truly influential artists who all tell the story of how this 6-string messiah inspired and enriched their musical journeys.  The documentary had a brief run on Showtime last year, but now the film is getting a theatrical release so you can see Hendrix shred on the big screen!

This exploration into Jimi's life and legacy through the lens of one iconic performance is coming to Shreveport's own Robinson Film Center on February the 15th.  A true Hendrix fan won't miss this experience.
