Sundance are excited to announce the UK premiere of documentary LAMBERT & STAMP for Sundance London 2014.
LAMBERT & STAMP charts a crazy, chaotic gospel of chance, as aspiring filmmakers Chris Stamp and Kit Lambert set out to search for a subject for their underground movie, leading them to discover, mentor, and manage the iconic band known as The Who and create rock ‘n’ roll history.
Charged with a mad concoction of noise, love, rebellion, artistry, and hilarity, LAMBERT & STAMP focuses on an extended interview with Chris Stamp, supplemented by insightful interviews with Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend and evocative archival footage, director James D. Cooper takes us along on the surprising ride of two men who shaped one of the most exciting bands in world music: its sound and look defined a generation.
