Streatham Free Film Festival presents an exclusive screening of Somebody Up There Likes Me (cert 15) - The first documentary film about Rolling Stones, Faces and Jeff Beck Group guitarist Ronnie Wood, directed by Academy Award nominee Mike Figgis.
SFF will be raising funds for their seventh free film festival with themed cocktails, food and a DJ afterwards!
Somebody Up There Likes Me traces Ronnie's life and career, and is described as a definitive and intimate portrait of the musician and artist.
The film features "brutally honest" interviews with Ronnie together with contributions from his Faces band mate Rod Stewart and The Rolling Stones' Mick Jagger, Charlie Watts and Keith Richards.
Other interviewees include Ronnie's wife Sally Wood, singer Imelda May and acclaimed artist Damien Hirst, who says Ronnie is a "dab hand" at painting and "he can paint better than me."
Mike Figgis says: "Music has always been central to the way I approach filmmaking. Working with Ronnie on 'Somebody Up There Likes Me' was a great opportunity to explore the roots of the UK Blues and Rock scene, something I had begun in 2002 with Red White and Blues, the Martin Scorcese produced history of the British blues scene.
"The bonus was Ronnie himself. A multi-talented storyteller, artist and musician. His candour and warmth was always present as he talked about the highs and the lows of his career thus far."
