After its release, the film will come exclusively to Amazon Prime Video on June 2.
Long Strange Trip is the first time Amazon Original Movies and Amazon Original Series have joined together on an original project to be released in both theaters and on Amazon Prime.
The doc was acquired by Amazon Studios ahead of its world premiere at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival. Long Strange Trip is the first full-length documentary to explore the band who would become one of the most influential musical groups of their generation. Featuring candid interviews with the band road crew, family members, and notable ‘Deadheads,’ Bar-Lev reveals the untold history of the innovative and independent band and the psychedelic subculture that sprouted up around it.
The official soundtrack to Long Strange Trip, featuring rare and unreleased Grateful Dead recordings, will be released by Rhino in conjunction with the documentary premiere and is available on Amazon Music.
Long Strange Trip is executive produced by Martin Scorsese, Emma Tillinger Koskoff, Rick Yorn, Thomas J. Mangan IV, Alicia Sams, Phil Lesh, Bob Weir, Mickey Hart, Bill Kreutzmann, Andy Heller, and Sandy Heller. Trixie Garcia is the co-executive producer for the doc. Producers are Eric Eisner, Nick Koskoff, Justin Kreutzmann, Ken Dornstein and Alex Blavatnik.
