Rolling Stones Film Retrospective Coming To MoMA

The Museum of Modern Art will be hosting a comprehensive film retrospective paying tribute to the 50th anniversary of the Rolling Stones.

The exhibition, which runs from November 15 through December 2, chronicles the band's evolution from the mid-1960s to today through documentaries, fiction features, concert films, music videos, experimental shorts, and archival footage.

The new retrospective opens with a rare screening of Robert Frank's S-8 Stones Footage from Exile on Main Street and Cocksucker Blues, both of which capture the band's 1972 North American cross-country tour.

Other films set to be screened include Peter Whitehead's The Rolling Stones Charlie Is My Darling - Ireland 1965, which is making its debut after an absence of over 45 years and presenting never-before-seen footage. Videos directed by David Fincher, Michel Gondry, Hal Ashby, Martin Scorsese, Albert Maysles, and Leslie Woodhead will also be featured.
