Documenting the "Canadian Woodstock on wheels", this is one of the great lost concert films, as we're on board a wild five day trip via train with some of the big names of rock: Janis Joplin, The Grateful Dead, Buddy Guy, The Band, and the Flying Burrito Brothers.

As the train rolls through the vast Canadian landscape, the cameras keep rolling through the onboard jams, the parties, the gigs, and the behind the scenes drama of financial disaster, protests, and fights.

The standout highlight of the live show, Joplin was dead three months after this, adding poignancy to her electrifying performances. "Resonates with the power and passion, even the innocence, of the era." - Washington Post

Showing under the stars in the stunning Surrealist Gardens, Hamilton Gardens. Programmed by the Hamilton Film Society.
