John Ridley earned his first Academy Award this year for his 12 Years a Slave screenplay, and now he's in the director's chair for Jimi: All Is by My Side, a biopic tracing a year in the life of Jimi Hendrix with Outkast's André Benjamin in the title role. Scenes take place everywhere from New York's barely remembered Cheetah Club to the famous Monterey Pop Festival, and the film will receive a limited release on September 26th. Here, one month early, take a look at shots from the set — photos featuring not just Benjamin as Hendrix but Imogen Poots as Linda Keith, Hayley Atwell as Kathy Etchingham and Ruth Negga as Ida.

Little Ring

Playing Linda Keith, another Hendrix girlfriend, Imogen Poots makes a phone call, no minor task in an apartment without end tables.

Gypsy Eyes

Atwell's Etchingham answers the phone. The inspiration for songs like "Foxey Lady" and "The Wind Cries Mary," she later documented her life in the late-Sixties in memoir Through Gypsy Eyes

Benjamin's Hendrix has a laugh with Poots' Keith. In Keith Richards' autobiography, he claims that she was the inspiration for "Ruby Tuesday" by the Rolling Stones.
