See 'It Might Get Loud' at Cine


The rockumentary "It Might Get Loud" examines the relationship between electric guitar and rock 'n roll god — three rock gods to be exact.  The 2008 film features The Edge, Jimmy Page and Jack White.

Directed by Davis Guggenheim ("An Inconvenient Truth"), this film traces some of rock's most influential guitar playing across different eras and sounds.  Led Zeppelin's Page revolutionized the late '60s and '70s hard rock sound.  The Edge's guitar sound has been the backbone for one of rock's most successful groups, U2, for decades.  And Jack White is the latest to rise to rock superstardom, first with his garage-guitar and drums duo The White Stripes, and later with The Raconteurs and the Dead Weather.

After tracing the stories of each musician — their influences, their careers, their sound, their history — the three are brought together for a jam session where things, well, they get loud.

Here's the trailer:

"It Might Get Loud" is currently playing at Cine in downtown Athens through October 29. See show times here.
