Documentary on the Rolling Stones guitarist made by the director of Oscar-winner 20 Feet From Stardom.

Netflix has announced is will premiere documentary Keith Richards: Under the Influence on September 18 for its members worldwide.

The film about the Rolling Stones guitarist and rock’n’roll legend has been directed by Morgan Neville, who made Oscar winning documentary 20 Feet From Stardom.

Neville said: ““If there’s a Mount Rushmore of Rock ’n’ Roll, Keith’s face is surely on it. He has always represented the soul of rock music—for all of the light and dark shades that implies.

“To my relief, Keith Richards turned out to be a real man - full of humor, knowledge and wisdom. That’s the real Keith we’ve worked to capture in our film and I’m honored to bring it to ​a global audience via Netflix.”

Produced by RadicalMedia (The Fog of War), the film explores the genesis of Richards’ sound as a songwriter, guitarist and performer while following the musician as he creates his first solo album in 23 years. 

Producers are Neville, Justin Wilkes and Jane Rose.
