Stones film 'not a history lesson'

A new documentary about the Rolling Stones will take viewers on a "rollercoaster ride", the film's director has promised.

Crossfire Hurricane, due for selected cinema release later this year, will document the key periods of the band's career, from teenage blues fans in the early 1960s to rock veterans. It will also be premiered on HBO in the US and broadcast on BBC Two.

The film's director Brett Morgen said: "Crossfire Hurricane invites the audience to experience first-hand the Stones' nearly mythical journey from outsiders to rock and roll royalty.

"This is not an academic history lesson. Crossfire Hurricane allows the viewer to experience the Stones' journey from a unique vantage point. It's an aural and visual rollercoaster ride."

The film features previously unseen footage and fresh insights from Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts, Ronnie Wood and former Stones Bill Wyman and Mick Taylor.
