Learning to Live Together: The Return of Mad Dogs & Englishmen

With special guests:  Filmmaker Jesse Lauter and Producer Wayne Forte

Screening and Q&A

Tickets: $20 general; $30 premium

In spring 1970, Joe Cocker undertook what became the legendary Mad Dogs and Englishmen tour, immortalized in a live album and concert film. Fast forward 50 years, and first-time filmmaker Jesse Lauter tells the entire story of the reunion of the Mad Dogs through the lens of the Grammy Award-winning Tedeschi Trucks Band. This reunion also featured 12 of the original Mad Dogs, including Leon Russell, Rita Coolidge and Claudia Lennear, plus guest performers Chris Robinson and Dave Mason, among others. The film showcases inspired performances from the reunion show, plus an exclusive look at the history of the tour, archival materials, commentary from the original members and critic David Fricke, comments from fans who attended shows on the original tour. It also features the last filmed interview with the late Leon Russell. A Q&A with the director Jesse Lauter and the co-producer Wayne Forte follows the screening.
