James D. Cooper’s film will make its world premiere in Park City

The Sundance Film Festival and Sundance London have added “Lambert & Stamp,” a documentary about The Who managers Kit Lambert and Chris Stamp, to their 2014 lineups.

James D. Cooper directed the documentary, which follows aspiring filmmakers Lambert and Stamp as they set out to search for a subject for their underground movie. This leads them to discover, mentor and manage the iconic band The Who — and create rock ‘n roll history.

“Lambert & Stamp” will make its world premiere in the festival’s Documentary Premieres section, and it’s also the first film to be announced as part of the 2014 Sundance London program. The full lineup will be announced in March.

The 30th anniversary of the Sundance Film Festival runs from Jan. 16-26 in Park City, Utah and surrounding cities.

The Sundance London film and music festival is a partnership between Robert Redford, Sundance Enterprises, Sundance Institute and AEG Europe. The third Sundance London will take place from 25-27 April, 2014 at The O2 and will host the international and UK premieres of films fresh from the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, as well as live music performances, panels and events. Ticket packages for Sundance London are on sale now at www.sundance-london.com.
