Kings of Leon: Talihina Sky

Talihina Sky is the story of Kings of Leon, from their strict Pentecostal upbringing in Oklahoma and Tennessee to their unlikely transformation into one of the biggest rock bands in the world.

Home movies, childhood photos and revealing interviews with band members’ parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins reveal how their family and background has influenced the creativity that drives Kings of Leon today. The story of Kings of Leon has been called the “best band creation story in recent memory” and is told in this film by the people who lived it.

The Band: Classic Albums – The Band

The Band’s eponymously titled 1969 album reached number 9 in the Billboard chart, secured 24 weeks in the Top 40, and sold over a million copies.

Featuring interviews with the surviving members of the band – Robbie Robertson, Levon Helm, Rick Danko, Garth Hudson and producer John Simon – together with fellow musicians including Eric Clapton, George Harrison, and Don Was, this film underlines The Band’s enormous contribution to popular music history and confirms why, for many music lovers they will always be The Band.



Thin Lizzy: Bad Reputation

Bad Reputation provides a rollercoaster ride through the life and times of Thin Lizzy, who some still say is the best hard rock band ever to come out of Ireland.

This film goes right back to the beginning, showing early footage of Phil Lynott in his pre-Lizzy bands, through the basic three-piece he formed with guitarist Eric Bell and drummer Brian Downey – the original Thin Lizzy – to the classic line-up, with guitarists Brian ‘Robbo’ Robertson and Scott Gorham. Contributors include Brian Downey, Scott Gorham, Eric Bell and Brian Robertson, as well as Midge Ure, Bob Geldof, Tony Visconti, Joe Elliot of Def Leppard and many others.



The Rolling Stones: Gimme Shelter

Gimme Shelter is a landmark portrait of a band – and a generation. What begins as a film of the Rolling Stones’ performances on their 1969 American tour switches to an inquiry into the devastating Altamont concert where Hell’s Angels — hired by the group itself to do security — stomped out the fading utopian dreams of the 60s.

Directors David Maysles, Albert Maysles and Charlotte Zwerin captured the passion and brilliance of live Stones shows — particularly in songs like ‘Honky Tonk Women’ and ‘Street Fighting Man’. But they also happened to catch on film a fan being stabbed in a crowd, footage they then showed to singer Mick Jagger. This sequence also makes Gimme Shelter a cut above and beyond most other rock documentaries: Jagger’s expression as he shakes his head at his own arrogance and naivete is truly remarkable.
