Before they become completely engulfed in Filkins’ reign of terror, they seek out some protection by placing an ad in Soldier of Fortune magazine.

On April 4, 2008, an Academy Award(R)-winning filmmaker and the world’s greatest rock n’ roll band will unite to bring audiences the year’s most extraordinary musical film event, “Shine a Light,” to theaters everywhere.
Martin Scorsese’s concert documentary “Shine a Light” will show the world the Rolling Stones as they’ve never been seen before. Filming at the famed Beacon Theatre in New York City in fall 2006, Scorsese assembled a legendary team of cinematographers to capture the raw energy of the legendary band.
Oscar(R)-winning cinematographer Robert Richardson (“The Aviator,” “JFK”) supervised the camera team comprised of several highly acclaimed directors of photography, including Oscar(R) winner John Toll (“The Last Samurai,” “Braveheart”), Oscar(R) winner Andrew Lesnie (“The Lord of the Rings” trilogy, “King Kong”), Oscar(R) nominee Stuart Dryburgh (“The Piano,” “The Painted Veil”), Oscar(R) nominee Robert Elswit (“Magnolia,” “Good Night and Good Luck”), Oscar(R) nominee Emmanuel Lubezki (“Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events,” “Sleepy Hollow”) and Ellen Kuras (“Summer of Sam,” “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind”). The film was edited by David Tedeschi, who most recently worked with Scorsese on the acclaimed Bob Dylan documentary “No Direction Home: Bob Dylan.”
Financed by Steve Bing’s Shangri-La Entertainment and longtime Rolling Stones tour promoter Michael Cohl’s Concert Promotions International, the film was produced by Victoria Pearman, Michael Cohl, Zane Weiner and Steve Bing. The executive producers are Stones members Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts and Ronnie Wood, with Jane Rose serving as co-executive producer.
