Do you know whether this film is simply the rooftop portion of “Get Back”, perhaps with some of the surrounding materials from Get Back?

Or is it a different film with some different video of the concert, street reaction, police, etc.? Shouldn’t there be a lot of such different material that fans would like to see?

I believe it’s just the rooftop segment from larger documentary. But yes, there is much footage that has not been released yet. I assume it will all eventually come out in some form.
