ABOUT THE SCREENING

Learning To Live Together The Return of Mad Dogs & Englishmen

A feature-length documentary and concert film spotlighting the reunion of a massive, electrifying thirty-two piece band.

The original “Mad Dogs & Englishmen” documentary is one of the greatest rock films of all time and beloved in the rock-doc canon, but there is still a GREAT mystery surrounding the formation and dissolution of that band.

“Learning To Live Together: The Return of Mad Dogs & Englishmen” not only captures the musical greatness and energy of the tribute show, but it also sheds new light on the outsized myths of the original tour.

THE STORY

The Making of A Legend

In the spring of 1970, Joe Cocker undertook what became the legendary 20th-century musical experiment—a traveling rock & roll commune that crisscrossed the country on a private jet. This meteoric tour came and went over a magical two months and as a one-time-only experience, it developed a mythical status amongst music fans throughout the world. Many attempts have been made to reunite the Mad Dogs, but it was never recreated in any way, shape or form...until now.

Record-Breaking Rock Reunion

Fifty years later, first-time filmmaker Jesse Lauter tells the complete story through the lens of the Grammy Award-winning Tedeschi Trucks Band’s reunion of the Mad Dogs. In addition to Derek Trucks, Susan Tedeschi and the entire Tedeschi Trucks Band, this reunion 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.

“Learning To Live Together: The Return of Mad Dogs & Englishmen” showcases inspired performances from the reunion show, along with an exclusive look at the history of the tour and the last filmed interview with the late Leon Russell. Experience never-before-seen archival materials and commentary from the original members, critic David Fricke and notable fans who attended shows on the original tour.

It begins as a simple reunion but evolves into a raw and revealing portrait of an expansive group of musicians who individually and collectively made significant marks on music history, all conveyed through the stories, sounds and creativity of some of the best rock musicians of the last half-century.
