SCREENING: 13 May 2017 at 20:00

Hull -- Jubilee Central Hall


The official documentary chronicling the life and work of Jimi Hendrix, including interviews with his father as well as fellow guitarists Pete Townsend and Eric Clapton. Performance footage includes highlights from the Monterey, Woodstock and Isle of Wight Festivals.

The film screening will be followed by a live performance:

‪Jimi Hendrix (Slight Return)

‪To celebrate the 50th anniversary of Jimi Hendrix’s astonishing debut album Are You Experienced, Bristol act Slight Return are proud to present an exhilarating, authentic live performance of landmark Hendrix tracks such as Purple Haze and Hey Joe. From the searing blues of Red House to the space-rock odyssey of Third Stone From The Sun, Hendrix’s music remains as viscerally exciting as it was in 1967, when its primal howls of feedback struck the British music scene like a thunderbolt from rock’s heavens. 

The BFI is funding ‘Transformative Film Culture For Hull', as part of its National Lottery-funded BFI Film Audience Network and led by its lead partner BFI Film Hub North. Delivered through Hull 2017 and by Hull Independent Cinema and a unique partnership of film festival, educational and archive partners from across the north, the film programme will bring a packed programme of more than 400 screenings, one-off events and film festivals throughout the year to Hull and the region. The programme reflects the BFI’s activities across the UK to bring film to audiences where there is less opportunity for them to experience and engage in film, and to support local film networks and audience initiatives. There will be much to explore, celebrate and enjoy.
