'It Might Get Loud' will premiere at Canadian film fest

A documentary featuring Jack White, The Edge and Jimmy Page is set to get its world premiere next month at the 2008 Toronto Film Festival.

Directed by David Guggenheim, ‘It Might Get Loud’ tells the stories of the three guitarists and their journeys as they developed how they played the electric guitar to create their own trademark style.

The movie focuses on a single day when the trio met and discuss with one another the stories of their history, what motivates and inspires them to write and play their instrument.
