On December 6, 1969, just four months after Woodstock defined the Love Generation, a free Rolling Stones concert at Altamont Speedway turned love into fear. Revolutionary documentarians David and Albert Maysles (Grey Gardens) were filming when a rowdy audience of 300,000 people clashed with the Hell’s Angels, then hired as low-cost security, resulting in a fatal stabbing and utter pandemonium. This landmark documentary, received as both essential and highly controversial, captured the night that changed everything.
