Pleased with Robert Frank’s photographs for the cover of their 1972 album Exile on Main St., the Rolling Stones invited him to document their next U.S. tour. Frank and his collaborator, Danny Seymour, created the observational documentary capturing the legendary musicians and their entourages in private encounters—later considered too revealing by some of the band members.

Biografía del director

Robert Frank

Robert Frank (b. 1924, Zurich) is one of the most well-known and acclaimed photographers in the world. Yet he was also a filmmaker, a fact that comparatively few remember or are even aware of. From 1959 onwards, he put his work as a photographer on hold to focus on cinema, going on to complete more than 25 films over a 50-year career until his death in September 2019. Many of these are regarded as seminal works within the international independent and documentary scene.
