(LOVELADIES, NJ) -- Lighthouse International Film Society presents two screenings of The Stones and Brian Jones - one on Friday, November 3, 2023 at Long Beach Island Foundation of the Arts & Sciences in Loveladies and another on Friday, November 10, 2023 at Spring Lake Theatre in Spring Lake. Both screenings begin at 7:30pm.
Revealing interviews and unseen archive footage of The Rolling Stones are released for the first time through The Stones and Brian Jones, as it explores the creative musical genius of Jones, who was key to the success of the band. The documentary also uncovers how the founder of what became the greatest rock'n'roll band in the world was left behind in the shadows of history.
The Stones and Brian Jones looks at the relationships and rivalries within The Rolling Stones in those formative years. It explores the iconoclastic freedom and exuberance of the 1960s, a time of intergenerational conflict and sexual turmoil which reflects on where we are today.
ADMISSION: $12 online/$14 door. Tickets are available for purchase online.
Director Nick Broomfield says of his inspiration to make the film, “The Rolling Stones were a major influence in my formative years. Brian and Mick were heroes of the day, their rebellion and breaking of the rules were a great inspiration to us. Making this film was an opportunity for me to look at that formative growing up time until the shock of Brian’s death in 1969, the darkest moment in the history of The Stones, when things changed.”
For decades among the foremost names in documentary, director Nick Broomfield is a British filmmaker best known for his award-winning work. Broomfield is the recipient of awards including Sundance First Prize, BAFTA, Prix Italia, Dupont Peabody Award, Grierson Award, Hague Peace Prize, Amnesty International Doen Award.
