Rolling Stones’ ‘Havana Moon’ To Shine In China

Published on

The Rolling Stones are breaking new ground yet again, with the news that Havana Moon – The Rolling Stones Live In Cuba, the film depicting their historic visit to the country in March 2016, is to have a theatrical release in China.

Global distribution company MusicScreen and European-Chinese distributor Pannonia Entertainment are to partner on the release. The film, directed by Paul Dugdale and produced by Eagle Rock Entertainment and JA Films, records the huge free outdoor concert in Havana that made the Stones the first band to undertake such a show in Cuba. It received a one-night theatrical release in cinemas around the rest of the world last September. It then became available for download and streaming exclusively on the Starz network app.

“We are proud to be teaming up with MusicScreen to release this visually and orally stunning concert on film,” says Klaudia Elsässer, founder and managing director of Pannonia Entertainment. “It recreates one of the most exciting and timeless moments in music history for the Chinese market, and will be screened in the unique China Film Archive’s central cinema in Beijing.”

MusicScreen, specialists in bringing music concerts to cinema, have already distributed Havana Moon to more than 1500 screens throughout Europe, Australia, Russia, Japan and Latin America. “It’s great to be working with Pannonia and a real achievement to have Havana Moon screening in China,” says MusicScreen CEO David Pope.

Mr. Li Tao, award-winning director and manager of Central CFI Cinemas, Beijing added: “It’s amazing that the Rolling Stones could make this revolutionary trip to Cuba and [give] a  marvellous performance to Cuban people. I wish the Rolling Stones could come to China sometime in the near future. I was impressed by their energetic and professional performance. They are the superstar as always. It’s really nice to have them on the big screen. I appreciated very much to bring the film to Chinese audiences.”
