White Stripes Canadian tour film gets UK premiere

See Jack and Meg's road movie in London next week

The White Stripes‘ 2007 tour documentary is to get its UK premier as part of the BFI London Film Festival next week.

The duo were joined by film maker Emmet Malloy to document their Canadian tour which saw them aim to play every province and territory in the country, taking in – as Jack White everywhere – “from the ocean to the permafrost”.

The result is ‘Under The Great White Northern Lights’, which sees the band play a variety of low key shows in venues ranging from pool halls to schools and bowling alleys.

The road movie will debut at two central London cinemas on October 16 and 17.
