After a chance visit to the ancient amphitheater of Pompeii, director Adrian Maben conceived the idea to film Pink Floyd performing within the venue’s stone walls, with one exception—there would be no audience but the crew filming them. The idea seemed avant-garde, much like the Floyd’s music, and despite previous attempts to collaborate with the group, this latest proposal was met with interest. One thing led to another, and ‘Live At Pompeii’ was born. Originally released in 1972, the film later made its way to North America, where it was a hit. Extensively researched, with quotes from original crew members, and a selection of images, ‘The Making Of Pink Floyd Live At Pompeii’ covers the full story of an important installment in rock cinema.
