Abramorama to Release the New Neil Young Film Mountaintop in Theaters Across North America on October 22, 2019
This Marks the 13th Collaboration between Abramorama and Shakey Pictures Spanning Sixteen Years
New York & Los Angeles (October 11, 2019) – Abramorama today announced a partnership with Shakey Pictures and Reprise / Warner Records to release the latest Neil Young film Mountaintop across North America on October 22, 2019 and in Europe and South American on November 18, 2019. Two-time Rock and Roll Hall of Fame member Neil Young continues his 50-year odyssey with Crazy Horse, this time in the mountains of Colorado with Mountaintop, a Bernard Shakey + Dhlovelife film with cinematographer Adam C.K. Vollick. Abramorama will release the Shakey Pictures film across North America and around the world, including France, Australia, Germany, the UK and Latin America. This marks the 13th time that Abramorama has collaborated with Bernard Shakey, dating back to Greendale and including Jonathan Demme’s trilogy, The Bernard Shakey Film Retrospective and the rerelease of Human Highway.
Mountaintop is a raw and extremely unfiltered look at the process of Neil Young with Crazy Horse making their 1st album in 7 years. Witness the laughter, tensions, crusty attitudes & love, of a rock & roll band that’s been together for 50 years as they share their passion, first and foremost… for the music.
Abramorama CEO Richard Abramowitz commented, ”The only thing better than working on a Bernard Shakey film is working on another Bernard Shakey film. Providing fans around the world with the opportunity to see how Neil and the band put it all together is a particularly rare and exciting experience.”
“This is not a f#*king recording – this is a band!” is one of the quotes from the film, as the band lets loose in the studio.
