’50 Years on Film’ is a fantastic retrospective that chronicles the band from the mid-1960s until now. You can see documentaries, fiction features, concert films, music videos, experimental shorts, and archival footage, including such rarities as Robert Frank’s Cocksucker Blues (1972) and Peter Whitehead’s The Rolling Stones Charlie Is My Darling—Ireland 1965 (1965/2012), which makes its debut after an absence of more than 45 years.
Don’t miss this opportunity!
The truth is that The Rolling Stones have worked with some of the most creative directors of their generation: Jean-Luc Godard, Kenneth Anger, Albert and David Maysles, Charlotte Zwerin, Martin Scorsese, Hal Ashby… In fact, this retrospective was necessary because the influence of The Rolling Stones on music, cinema, art, and even politics over the past half century has been really important. As Martin Scorsese has observed, “In my formative years, before I made Mean Streets even, the Rolling Stones created a well of inspiration that became a part of my consciousness. Their music shapes the images I see when I’m planning a movie—camera movements, lighting, tone, attitude.”
