Over the past year or so, Netflix has become a creative hub for cutting edge documentaries including Virunga and the incredible Black Fish. Now Netflix plans to break into the music world with its upcoming documentary on one of the original members of The Rolling Stones, Keith Richards.
If having a member of The Rolling Stones wasn’t cool enough for you then the director of the documentary surely will. The Academy Award winning film maker Morgan Neville is behind the project. (What Happened, Miss Simone?, The Fog of War)
Netflix has stated that the documentary will be ‘unparalleled in its access as it looks at one of the architects of rock ‘n’ roll music, while charting the journey of Keith’s sound and influences, back to the music that inspired him then and now’ and that it’s ‘A culmination of both new and beloved music, rare archival materials and hours of intimate and reflective conversations with Keith.’
The documentary title is Keith Richards: Under the Influence and will be premiering on Netflix globally on September 18th.
