Shine a Light

Shine a Light is a 2008 documentary film directed by Martin Scorsese that chronicles two 2006 performances from rock and roll band The Rolling Stones' A Bigger Bang tour. It also includes archive footage from the band's career. The film takes its title from the song of the same name, featured on the band's 1972 album Exile on Main St. A soundtrack album will be released in April 2008 on the Universal label. The film was initially scheduled for release on September 21 2007, but Paramount Classics postponed it until April 2008. The world premiere was at the 58th Berlin International Film Festival on February 7 2008. The film will also be screened in some IMAX cinemas. The Rolling Stones' Myspace page currently features media from both the film and album.
