Earlier this year, The Rolling Stones embarked on a 10-city Latin American tour. The tour culminated with a March 25th concert in Havana, Cuba, marking the first time a major international rock band performed in the country since the United States lifted embargo sanctions. Over one million Cuban citizens turned out to witness the historic event.
If all this sounds like the makings of a documentary film, you’d be right: Olé Olé Olé!: A Trip Across Latin America is set to receive its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival next week. In anticipation, a new trailer for the film is streaming up top.
Directed by Paul Dugdale,Olé Olé Olé! begins at the band’s tour rehearsals in Los Angeles ahead of their two-month outing. Once on the road, “the band immerses in the local cultures of these cities and the viewer learns about each destination’s influence on the band and how the Rolling Stones impacted the cities and its people,” according to a press release.
Additionally, the film includes full live performances of “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction”, “It’s Only Rock ‘n Roll”, “Wild Horses”, “Honky Tonk Women”, “Sympathy For The Devil”, “Paint It Black” and “Miss You”.
