Filmmaker Bryant Dead

  • WENN
Baird Bryant, the revered documentary filmmaker/cinematographer who captured the stabbing at the Rolling Stones' Altamont Speedway show in California in 1969 has died.

Quick-thinking Bryant turned his camera on a scuffle at the front of the stage while shooting the Stones' show - and inadvertently shot footage of an infamous crime, which heightened the controversy of the subsequent 1970 concert film Gimme Shelter.

Bryant, who was 80 when he passed away last week, also shot pivotal footage for the film Easy Rider. He also filmed Oscar-winning documentary Broken Rainbow - about the Navajo (Native Americans) - and acclaimed 1991 film Heart of Tibet, which featured the Dalai Lama as its star.
