A film by Emmett Malloy
In the summer of 2007, shortly after the release of their 6th album Icky Thump, the White Stripes headed North of their hometown Detroit, across the Canadian border on an ambitious journey. The plan was to play a show in every province and territory in Canada, from B.C to Newfoundland to Nunavut. “Having never done a tour of Canada, Meg and I thought it was high time to go whole hog.” Taking their tour to the far reaches of the Canadian landscape. “From the ocean to the permafrost.” says Jack White. “We wanted to play out of the way towns, that don’t usually get shows…the shows are better, it’s better for the people, it’s a better experience, it’s way more unique, something interesting is going to happen…hopefully.”
White called upon filmmaker Emmett Malloy to come up and document this trek for the band. Malloy had directed videos for the band in the past, and seemed eager to hit the road with the band for this important moment in rock and roll history. Equipped with a couple 16mm cameras, along with a few other documenting devices, the band and crew all headed North and the end result is The White Stripes: Under Great White Northern Lights.http://woodshed.com/videos/whitestripes.mov
