THUMBNAIL

The Quiet One  

Synopsis

The Quiet One offers a unique behind-the-scenes look at the highs and lows of the life and career of Bill Wyman, former founding member of the Rolling Stones and renaissance man of rock’n’roll.


Since childhood, Bill kept a detailed diary of every single day. He shot hours of unseen film footage, took thousands of photographs and collected a vast archive of memorabilia. The Quiet One gained exclusive access to the collection, including the first moments of the young Rolling Stones on film in beautiful Super-8 and 16mm.


The archive reveals Bill’s unique perspective and first-hand view of music’s rock’n’roll years along with his exploits with the band. However, the compulsion to collect also describes a man who is still coming to terms with the way his life unfolded, trying to find order in chaos, proving his adventures really happened.
