White Stripes Doc to Screen at Studio on the Square



Indie Memphis will present a local screening of the new concert documentary The White Stripes: Under Great White Northern Lights next week at Studio on the Square.

The 93 minute documentary, from filmmaker Emmett Malloy, follows the duo Jack and Meg White on a 2007 Canadian tour. Featuring the band's own trademark color palette — black, white, and red — the film captures the band at concert halls and other traditional music venues, but also finds them performing on buses, in cafes, and in other non-traditional venues.

Extremely well-received so far, Under Great White Northern Lights debuted at the Toronto International Film Festival last fall and has its American debut tomorrow night at the SXSW film festival in Austin. Indie Memphis will screen the film Tuesday, March 16th at Studio on the Square at 7:30 pm. Admission is $5 at the door or free for Indie Memphis members. You can also get in free by showing up dressed in White Stripes colors.
