LOS ANGELES, CA - (October 18, 2013) - SPRINGSTEEN & I is a unique feature music documentary celebrating rock icon, Bruce Springsteen and his hordes of adoring fans. Filmmaker Ridley Scott says, "This beautifully crafted film provides a unique insight into the powerful bond between a recording artist and those who connect so profoundly with his music." Inspired by Scott Free London's (who served as executive producers) critically acclaimed feature film Life In A Day, fans around the world submitted clips sharing stories about their relationship to Springsteen and his iconic music. Filmmakers capture these moments & include never-before-seen archive footage of Springsteen's performances throughout his career, and his incredible music. Directed by Baillie Walsh and produced by Ridley Scott Associates/Black Dog Films, this is the ultimate filmmaking experience. SPRINGSTEEN & I is a film for the people, by the people - filled with beloved songs and the stories they lived. On Friday, October 25th at 9 PM (ET/PT) on SHOWTIME, audiences everywhere will learn how the sound of Springsteen became the soundtrack of America and feel the impact he has had on fans worldwide for the past four decades.
Working with the filmmakers, his fans have helped create a film that reflects on their personal insights and experiences, to explore what this timeless artist means to them. Springsteen burst onto the rock scene in the '70s and changed the genre forever. His songs defined a generation, but behind the songs were remarkable stories about the fans that grew up listening to them. Springsteen is one of the greatest recording artists of all time - a rock legend whose lyrics speak to one and all. From the streets of his native New Jersey, to the dizzying heights of fame, no other artist has embodied the highs and lows of the American Dream more than Bruce Springsteen.
