Revival69: The Concert That Rocked the World tells the remarkable, behind-the-scenes true story of how a little known music festival came together against all odds to become enshrined in rock mythology as “the second most important event in rock ‘n roll history.” Young, scrappy concert promoter John Brower puts his life on the line to turn his failing Toronto Rock and Roll Revival into a one-day blowout event on Sept. 13, 1969, and it almost didn’t happen. The festival united rock legends like The Doors, Little Richard, Chuck Berry, Alice Cooper, Gene Vincent and Bo Diddley, but it was the 11th hour arrival of John Lennon and the Plastic Ono Band, in their first public performance, that ignited a truly seminal moment for the 20,000+ fans at Toronto’s Varsity Stadium, sparking Lennon’s decision to leave the Beatles forever. Forged from rare, recently discovered behind-the-scenes Super 8 verité footage, and including never-before seen 16mm film of the concert shot by D.A. Pennebaker and his crew, Revival69: The Concert That Rocked the World is an exhilarating VIP ride into a pivotal moment in music history, told through the eyes of those who were there: the musicians, the mavericks behind the scenes, and all who witnessed history in the making. (Dir. by Ron Chapman, 2024, Canada, 97 mins., Not Rated)
