“American Epic” filmmaker Bernard MacMahon has disclosed the title of his long-awaited and just finished Led Zeppelin feature documentary: “Becoming Led Zeppelin.”
The documentary, which was initially revealed in 2019, has privileged access to the band, marking the first and only time the group has collaborated in a documentary in 50 years. In 1976, “The Song Remains the Same” was a band-centered film of the 1973 Madison Square Garden concert series.
“The Led Zeppelin’s documentary is becoming a film that nobody can think of,” MacMahon says. “The band was fast and nearly undocumented with its spectacular journey to stardom. This documentary is a result of an exhaustive worldwide search and years of restoring the audio and visual archives. “
The film includes new interviews of the late, 1980 dead John Bonham, and with Jimmy Page, Robert Plant and John Paul Jones. The video contains films and images from unprecedented archives, cutting-edge audio transfers of the group’s music, and the music of artists who shaped their sound.
At the start of the project, Page commented, “When I saw all the visual and sonic achievements Bernard had done in ‘American Epic’ I knew that he was skilled in telling our history.”.” The project had been publicised.
First established in London, the UK rock band was one of the most influential bands in history, with classics such as “Stairway to Heaven,” “Good Times Bad Times” and “The Immigrant Song.”
