IT MIGHT GET LOUD (2008) [feature]

USA (MIFF 2009 , Backbeat)
Director: Davis Guggenheim

“A three-headed, amped-up, guitar-shredding slamdown powered by a pan-generational trio of rock gods.” - Variety

Filmmaker Davis Guggenheim (An Inconvenient Truth) fires up the Marshall stack for this raucous tribute to the electric guitar, and ode to three guitar legends. It Might Get Loud gets up close with influential musicians from three generations of rock: Led Zeppelin‘s Jimmy Page, U2‘s The Edge and White Stripes guitarist Jack White. Speaking candidly about their beginnings and their distinct playing styles, the three performers give their unique insights into the electric love affair with the guitar that launched their careers.

Features an unforgettable jam session between the three legends, as they trade riffs from the songs that made them famous.
