    “Sir Mick Jagger was in Havana last week, which was great for us because it just happened to be Brit Week 2015 – a celebration of music, sport, theatre, film and photography. Here he is with Ambassador Tim Cole following a chat about music and 2015 being a historic year for Cuba. Let’s hope Sir Mick will be back in town in the not too distant future with the Rolling Stones! Fingers crossed.”

    A little more here:

     

    The BBC’s Creative Director Alan Yentob is working with Mick Jagger, the film director Julien Temple and ballet dancer Carlos Acosta on a series of films about the new Cuba.

    Only weeks after the Caribbean nation re-opened relations with the United States, Yentob told The Independent that Temple was currently with Jagger in the Cuban capital Havana working on a “long-term project” to create the latest in a series of city-based films for the flagship BBC1 arts show Imagine. Previous films have featured London and Rio de Janeiro.

     

    The Imagine host said he hoped to capture the story of a potential Rolling Stones concert in Havana, which could provide the finale for the band’s South American tour next spring. “We have started filming and this is going to be a project which will have a theatrical life (cinema release),” he said. Yentob, who is old friends with Jagger, also worked with Temple on Requiem for Detroit, a remarkable BBC2 film exploring the cultural and economic story of one of America’s greatest industrial cities.
