Docs That Rock

White Stripes Doc May Do Toronto Film Fest

Another close text scoop from the folks at The Playlist: The White Stripes doc (which they amazingly caught reference to in an otherwise longer piece in Self-Titled mag about Jack’s latest band Dead Weather) has a new doc on the way. Per Jack, there are 40 songs to be mixed. And now in Canada’s National Post (do those guys read everything or have the best settings for Google reader?), there is “speculation” that the doc The White Stripes: Under Great White Northern Lights is expected to close out this year’s Toronto Film Festival. Per the Playlist:

The doc was shot on the Stripes 2007 Canadian tour, where they played a gig in every province and territory. A tribute, White says, to his Nova Scotia roots. White says about the tour, “I always thought it was an untapped frontier. We booked a show in every province and territory and we found out that no Canadian band had done that. It was great to be part of a new frontier there for a minute or two.”

I think Anvil played Toronto last year (it certainly opened Hot Docs) so credit Canadian cineastes to getting hip to rock docs. (The As Ugly As I Seem clip above is from Charlie Rose, not the upcoming film.)
