Jimi Hendrix: Hear My Train a-Comin’

This is the 90-minute director’s cut of the film that premiered November 5, 2013.

Hear My Train A-Comin’ unveils previously unseen performance footage and home movies taken by Hendrix and drummer Mitch Mitchell while sourcing an extensive archive of photographs, drawings, family letters and more to provide new insight into the musician’s personality and genius.

The film also features revealing glimpses into Jimi and his era from the three women closest to him: Linda Keith (the girlfriend who introduced Jimi to future manager Chas Chandler), Faye Pridgon (who befriended Hendrix in Harlem in the early 1960s) and Colette Mimram (one of the era’s most influential fashion trendsetters who provided inspiration for Hendrix’s signature look & created such memorable stage costumes as the beaded jacket Hendrix famously wore at Woodstock).
