Director James D. Cooper’s Lambert & Stamp (pictured) has joined this year’s Sundance Film Festival line-up and will also screen at Sundance London.

The feature documentary profiles Chris Stamp and Kit Lambert, a pair of aspiring filmmakers who set out to make a music doc and wound up managing and producing musical acts such as The Who and Jimi Hendrix in the 1960s and 1970s.

The film will have its world premiere in Sundance’s Documentary Premieres program, bringing the number of features at the festival to 120.

It will then have its UK premiere at the third annual Sundance London Film and Music festival in April. The rest of the festival line-up will be announced in March.

Cooper is an American photographer and cinematographer whose DP credits include the 1992 Sundance doc winner Brother’s Keeper. Lambert & Stamp marks his directorial debut.

The Sundance Film Festival takes place from January 16 to 26 in Park City, Salt Lake City, Ogden and Sundance, Utah. Sundance London runs April 25 to 27.
