Netflix has released the trailer for its new Keith Richard documentary.
Keith Richards: Under the Influence, which arrives on Friday 18th September, will take an “unprecedented look” into the sounds and influences of the Rolling Stones rock icon. The film marks the latest in a long line of original non-fiction Netflix productions, with several about musicians – including What Happened, Miss Simone? and The Other One: The Long Strange Trip of Bob Weir.
The movie is directed by Morgan Neville, who helmed the Oscar-winning 20 Feet from Stardom.
“If theres a Mount Rushmore of Rock n Roll, Keith’s face is surely on it. He has always represented the soul of rock music—for all of the light and dark shades that implies,” says filmmaker Morgan Neville. “To my relief, Keith Richards turned out to be a real man—full of humor, knowledge and wisdom. That’s the real Keith we’ve worked to capture in our film.”
The film reunites Netflix with Academy Award and Emmy winning producers, Radical Media, who also worked on What Happened, Miss Simone?, and takes us back to the origin of Richards’ sound as a songwriter, guitarist and performer, from the music that inspired him then to now, as he creates his first solo album in 23 years.
