Listening to their music, I was building scripts in my head, says this director who, in addition to traditional motion pictures, also shoots music documentaries; he drew on his experience when he shot a film from two Rolling Stones concerts in New York, recorded in the old New York theater Beacon using nineteen cameras (one of them operated by the documentary director Albert Maysles). The breaks between the songs are filled by old black-and-white recordings from the band's beginnings.
