A feature-length documentary and concert film spotlighting the reunion of a massive, electrifying thirty-two piece band. The original “Mad Dogs & Englishmen” documentary is one of the greatest rock films of all time and beloved in the rock-doc canon, but there is still a great mystery surrounding the formation and dissolution of that band. “Learning To Live Together: The Return of Mad Dogs & Englishmen” not only captures the musical greatness and energy of the tribute show, but it also sheds new light on the outsized myths of the original tour.
