SIFF 2014 Opening Night Gala: Jimi: All Is By My Side
It just seems fitting that the 40th Seattle International Film Festival would start with the searing guitar licks of a local legend. Jimi: All Is By My Side, the Jimi Hendrix biopic starring André Benjamin (aka OutKast's André 3000), will kick things off as the SIFF 2014's Opening Night Gala film. Written and directed by Oscar-winning screenwriter John Ridley (12 Years a Slave), the movie centers on Hendrix's early career going from unknown talent to rock star, while struggling to deal with the women in his life (played by Imogen Poots and Hayley Atwell).
