Synopsis by Hal Erickson
The Concert for Kampuchea is a record of an all-star charity rock bash, committed to film by director Keith McMillan. Among those who perform before the ever-screaming fans are The Who, Paul McCartney, Robert Plant, The Pretenders, Elvis Costello, the Clash, Rockpile, The Specials, Ian Dury, Rockestra, and Matumbi. Filmed in 1980, The Concert for Kampuchea did not receive American theatrical distribution until it was picked up by Miramax in 1988.
