On February 6th, Josh Kun, director of the Popular Music Project will participate in a panel discussion at “The Rolling Stones on Film” festival. Presented by the School of Cinematic Arts and Visions and Voices: The USC Arts & Humanities Initiative, this two-day film festival will explore the many facets of the Rolling Stones’ involvements in cinema. Beginning with their appearance in one of the most celebrated of the early rock’n’roll documentaries, The T.A.M.I. Show (1964), the Stones became one of the most cinematic — both highly visible and highly visual — of sixties pop groups. The festival will combine screenings illustrating the long and uniquely resonant history of music in film with a panel discussion focused on its cultural and social implications. A reservation is required.
