The White Stripes Documentary to Rock RSU Thursday

Screaming fans, bright lights, and wailing guitars is what Emmett Malloy saw each time he filmed The White Stripes in concert for their documentary titled “Under Great White Northern Lights.” The documentary won’t be released until Tuesday, March 16, but fans can attend a pre-release screening of the film at Rogers State University on Thursday, March 11 to see the film before it is available to the public.

“Under Great White Northern Lights” will be shown at 7 p.m. in the Will Rogers Auditorium on the RSU campus. This showing is free and open to the public. The film is not rated.

The documentary is the final film for RSU’s 2009-2010 Fine Arts Film Series, said Dr. Hugh Foley, associate professor of fine arts. The event also is co-sponsored by RSU Radio.

Jack White, singer, songwriter, pianist, and guitarist, alongside Meg White, drummer and vocals, formed The White Stripes in 1997. The two have since produced popular songs including the Grammy-winning works “Seven Nation Army” and “Icky Thump.”

“Under Great White Northern Lights” was filmed during The White Stripes 2007 Canada tour and captures their 10th Anniversary show at the historic Savoy Theatre in Nova Scotia, Canada.
