The Rolling Stones Olé Olé Olé! - A Trip Across Latin America Trailer

His fourth film for The Rolling Stones saw Dugdale at the helm a feature length road movie documentary. Premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival and screened at countless others, the film received international acclaim. It follows the band on the road across Latin America, and chronicles the run up to their landmark, historical show in Havana, Cuba, in front of a reported crowd of 2 million people.

Keith Richards said of the film at the premiere: “Im not a big fan of filming, but Paul Dugdale came out with Olé Olé Olé!... Yeah it’s the Stones but it’s more about the South American people, the energy and optimism, which we need a lot more of in this world right now.”

The film is available to view now in full on Netflix.
