“The Rolling Stones Olé Olé Olé: A Trip Across Latin America,” a documentary about the legendary rock group’s 2016 South American tour that ended with a concert in Havana, and “Gimme Danger,” director Jim Jarmusch’s candid look at the punk-rock band The Stooges led by Iggy Pop, will screen as part of the Miami Film Festival’s 2016 GEMS showcase.

The mini-festival, which will run Oct. 13-16 at Miami Dade College’s Tower Theater, is a precursor to the main 10-day festival, which will be held in March 2017.
“With the Stones’ recent historical free concert in Cuba and with Iggy Pop being a beloved resident of our city, both of these films are so eagerly awaited by Miami film and music fans that we could not contain ourselves any longer,“ said Jaie Laplante, the Festival’s executive director & director of programming.
