The White Stripes Under Great White Northern Lights


Screening Monday, March 15, 2010
American Cinematheque at the
Lloyd E. Rigler Egyptian Theatre

Please join American Cinematheque and Flux for the exclusive theatrical screening of Under Great White Northern Lights, director Emmett Malloy’s highly-anticipated new documentary about The White Stripes. The night will include a Q&A with the director, free posters and other fun surprises.

In the summer of 2007, The White Stripes embarked on a cross-country Canadian tour to accomplish their goal of performing in every province and territory across the expansive northern nation. The Emmett Malloy-directed documentary film, Under Great White Northern Lights, captured that incredible journey. On March 15th the Egyptian Theatre will host an exclusive Los Angeles theatrical screening allowing fans a peek into the touring lives of one of the world’s most enigmatic bands before its official DVD release on March 16th.

Having first premiered at the Toronto Film Festival in September 2009, Under Great White Northern Lights documents the band playing to crowds in towns of all sizes across the Great White North – from traditional venues to matinee gigs at unusual locations such as a bowling alley, a boat and even on a city bus – culminating in a momentous 10th Anniversary show at the historic Savoy Theatre in Glace Bay, Nova Scotia. A captivating mix of striking live footage and poignant off-stage moments, this visually stirring and emotive feature length film celebrates the band’s 10 year history, bringing the band full circle in their career to a place reminiscent of how they first started out; shows where no one knew who they were, and where they were left to make a first impression with their music.
