'Lambert & Stamp'

Sony Pictures Classics has acquired The Who founding story "Lambert & Stamp," which debuted well at Sundance 2014. SPC will handle the release of cinematographer-turned-director James D. Cooper’s debut documentary in North America, Australia, New Zealand, Asia, Eastern Europe and Russia. The Harms/Cooper, Motocinema, Inc. production stars Chris Stamp and Kit Lambert, and features Pete Townshend, Roger Daltrey and Terence Stamp. 

Aspiring New Wave filmmakers Stamp and Lambert were looking for a subject for an underground movie when they stumbled upon the band that would become The Who. They went on to mentor and manage the group. “'Lambert & Stamp' is the greatest untold story in rock," states Cooper, who shot as well as producing the film along with Loretta Harms and Douglas Graves. "The movie captures a very unlikely partnership and the hailstorm of creativity that comes with it."

“The craftsmanship and research that went into making 'Lambert & Stamp' is remarkable," said Sony Pictures Classics. "In telling this seminal story, James and Loretta and their team pay tribute not only to one of the greatest rock bands ever, but also to the glorious synchronicity of the creative process.”
