As reported a long-in-the-making documentary about the Grateful Dead directed by Amir Bar-Lev, which counts Martin Scorsese as an executive producer, will premiere next month at the Sundance Festival. A page for the film, titled Long Strange Trip, has been posted on Sundance’s website and confirms the run time for the documentary is a whopping 235 minutes.
