– Documentary on the Journey of Led Zeppelin to Premiere in Theaters

The highly anticipated documentary “Becoming Led Zeppelin” is set for a theatrical release, making it the first official film on the iconic British rock band. Directed by Bernard MacMahon, the “hybrid docu-concert film” premiered as a work in progress at the Venice Film Festival in 2021 and has now been acquired by Sony Pictures Classics for North American distribution.

The documentary tells the story of Led Zeppelin in the band members’ own words, featuring new interviews with Jimmy Page, Robert Plant, and John Paul Jones, as well as unreleased interviews with the late John Bonham. It also includes previously unseen material from the archives of all four band members, including home movies and family photos. In addition, the film showcases rare footage of concerts at iconic venues like the Fillmore West, the Atlanta Pop Festival, and the Texas Pop Festival, all recorded in 1969.

Jimmy Page expressed his excitement about the film, stating, “When I saw the early cut of the film premiered at the Venice Film Festival, it was amazing. The energy of the story, and the power of the music, is phenomenal.” Director MacMahon added, “We have spent years designing this film to be experienced on the big screen with the best possible sound.”

With its in-depth look at the legendary band’s journey, “Becoming Led Zeppelin” promises to be a must-see for fans and music enthusiasts alike. Stay tuned for the official release date in North America.
