In 2012, a resurrection no-one thought possible took place when legendary band, The Stone Roses reformed after 16 years.

With unprecedented access to previously unseen archive footage, Made of Stone is a revealing journey through the life of one of the most revered and influential bands in British music history.

Shane Meadows brings his unique directorial style, humour and emotional depth to the film, capturing the band at work and in their everyday lives as they rehearsed for their much-anticipated reunion, which culminated in three triumphant homecoming gigs at Manchester's Heaton Park in front of 220,000 adoring fans.

Incorporating never-seen-before material spanning the band's musical history, the personal experiences of many of those touched by the band and their music, and unparalleled access to the record-breaking sell-out concerts which took place in summer 2012, this is the definitive record of the definitive band of the past 25 years.



Shane first met Ian Brown at the Bristol City Museum when they were both coincidentally in attendance of the large scale Banksy exhibition in 2009.

Before Made of Stone, Ian Brown appeared in another of Shane's projects. This Is England '86!
Ian plays one of two policemen who try to break up the fight between the two gangs lead by Woody and Flip.

Shane believes he ruined his chances of hearing new Stone Roses material when he showed the band a rough (and not very good) early edit of the film. He believes he lost some of his privileges for a while after that!
