Palador Pictures Pvt. Ltd., the undisputed leader in the World Cinema category in India with close to a 1000 World Cinema titles, have scored another ace for the country, acquiring the highly coveted Rolling Stones documentary film SHINE A LIGHT directed by Oscar winner Martin Scorsese. SHINE A LIGHT opened the prestigious Berlin International Film Festival on 7th February and was received with rousing applause. The film slated to release in April in the US, will also see an Indian theatrical release.

Martin Scorsese who has earlier explored the lives of other bands in his previous films THE LAST WALTZ and NO DIRECTION HOME: BOB DYLAN turned his lens on rock and roll legends THE ROLLING STONES for this documentary. The focus of the film is on two concerts of the band in 2006. Besides extensive coverage of this concert, the documentary also features historical footage, interviews and behind-the-scenes footages from the 4 decades of the bands existence, including footage from Bill Clinton's birthday party in which the band played.

The film has won the prestigious honour at the Berlin International Film Festival by being its opening film. It is no surprise for the film has been labeled the ULTIMATE CONCERT FILM already and millions of fans of one of the oldest surviving and active bands in the world, eagerly await its release.

Gautam Shiknis, MD and Founder of Palador Pictures said, "We are constantly striving to add new and great quality content to our repertoire of a 1000 films. SHINE A LIGHT combines two masters in two respective genres, The Rolling Stones in music and Martin Scorsese in movies. We want to expose lovers of both music and cinema in this country to this lethal combination."

Co-founder and Joint MD, Mohan Polamar, said, "Musical documentary has not garnered mass appeal or the detailed attention of the entertainment industry. However, there is a huge audience for the same. We are sure music lovers will lap up this opportunity and go to see the movie in hordes. We also want to show the strength of this genre in this country by doing some interesting events to promote the film."

The film will be theatrically released in India with 50 prints across the country. Palador also has plans to do a never before combination of screening the film, combined with live gigs performed by local bands across the country in exclusive clubs.
