The Rolling Stones’ two-month trek across South America as part of their 10-city tour earlier this year will be coming to theaters soon, and fans can now see the trailer ahead of the film’s premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival.
Olé Olé Olé!: A Trip Across Latin America is part concert film and part documentary, following the Stones across nine cities in Chile, Argentina, Uruguay, Brazil, Peru, Colombia and Mexico before ending in Havana, Cuba, for a historic moment. Their show in the country marked the first time an international rock band performed there since the United States lifted its embargo.
In between the band’s sold out stadium crowd performances, they discuss the political nature of rock and roll. In some countries where they performed, the music genre was once banned and instead fostered underground movements. According to the press release, in Olé Olé Olé! “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.” The film was directed by Paul Dugdale.
