THE OTHER ONE: THE LONG, STRANGE TRIP OF BOB WEIR

Music, Returning Filmmaker
Drop out of school to ride with the Merry Pranksters. Form America's most enduring jam band. Become a family man and father. Reconnect with your parents late in life. Never stop chasing the muse. Bob Weir took his own path to and through superstardom as rhythm guitarist for The Grateful Dead. TFF alum Mike Fleiss (God Bless Ozzy Osbourne) reimagines the whole, wild journey in a magnetic rock doc and concert film that never quite leads to where you think it is going. In Weir's distinctively styled words: “You have to see it to see it.”

Guided by bandmates, contemporaries, followers, family, and, of course, Weir himself, The Other One is an ambitious look at the counter-culture and music scenes that defined The Dead. Weir is its rock, delivering unexpected lessons on handling success, especially when it gains popularity you never dreamed possible.

-Arthur Ryel-Lindsey
