It's Only Rock 'n' Roll

UC Berkeley Art Museum Pacific Film Archive

Celebrate the roots and resonance of rock in cinema both in the Barbro Osher Theater and with three free events on BAMPFA's outdoor screen. This series includes some of the best concert films of all time. Visit the website for schedule.

This is what SF/Arts curator Sura Wood has to say about It's Only Rock 'n' Roll :

BAMPFA rocks the summer with theater screenings and free outdoor events. Focusing on the synergy between rock music and cinema, the series features some of the best concert films ever made. They include “Stop Making Sense,” Jonathan Demme’s rousing paean to the Talking Heads; Martin Scorsese’s tribute to The Band, “The Last Waltz”; Perry Henzell’s “The Harder They Come,” starring Jimmy Cliff; and “Gimme Shelter,” which documented the infamous Rolling Stones’ concert at Altamont.
