International Film Festival
in Montana.

Part of eclectic line up of documentary shorts it will screened at this year’s Festival, which runs from 15 – 18 September.

Directed by Cheryl Robson and Helen Walker, Rock n Roll Island captures the extraordinary history of Eel Pie Island in Twickenham, which in the early 1960s became the focal point of English R & B and Rock ‘n’ Roll.

The film features original archive footage (including The Rolling Stones), photos and narration by former Eel Pie resident Nigel Planer, and interviews with Rod Stewart, Steve Hackett, Mick Avory, Top Topham, Phil May, Paul Stewart, Don Craine, Keith Grant, Derek Griffiths, Geoff Cole, Bob Dwyer, Blaine Harris and several Eel Pie Island fans.13895556_1034838003260388_5092162084394484957_n
