It Might Get Loud: Jimmy Page, Edge & Jack White

Hailed as “a documentary on the electric guitar from the point of view of three rock legends,” It Might Get Loud examines how the instrument has influenced three generations of musicians. These are represented in the upcoming film by Led Zeppelin's Jimmy Page, The Edge (trend-setting U2 guitarist) and Jack White of the White Stripes.

Sony Pictures Classics' website states, "Filmed through the eyes of three virtuosos from three different generations, audiences get up close and personal, discovering how... each used the electric guitar to develop [his] unique sound and rise to the pantheon of superstar. Rare discussions are provoked as we travel with Jimmy Page, The Edge and Jack White..."

Directed by Davis Guggenheim (An Inconvenient Truth) and produced by Thomas Tull (Dark Knight), the film is both an intimate look of the careers and styles of the three guitarists. In relation to Page, it's also a rare view given his reticence with the press.

You could find other guitarists [who] were virtuosos,
and [others who] are legends, but you may not find
three [who] are all searchers. still searching and
still trying to figure out what it means to make music.

Director Davis Guggenheim

It Might Get Loud officially debuts Aug. 14 in New York and Los Angeles, with showings in additional cities to follow.
