The Doors The Doors Are Open

1968 • 0h 54m

This film documents the band at the height of their career and at the top of their game, performing at The Roundhouse in the Chalk Farm area of London on the first dates of their 1968 European tour, September 6 & 7, just days after the completion of filming for Feast of Friends on September 1, 1968.

Captured here are dramatic performances of songs that convey the band's strong messages about the war. Interspersed with the band’s music are intense scenes from the Vietnam war, political leaders, and riots back in the states. The Doors Are Open highlights the political relevance of The Doors’ opinionated lyrics and iconic sound while giving context to the tumultuous times in which they were living.
