The Californian Morgan Neville has spent over 20 years filming musical productions since he decided to make a turnaround on his career as a journalist to devote himself to the cinema in 1993. Twenty feet from stardom, nourishing from those two decades of experience uncovers in the masterly way of the good connoisseur the intricacies of a powerful industry that has so unjustly acted on several occasions towards these ‘other wonderful voices’ that, despite rocking stadiums, never reached the fame, being relegated to the background, overshadowed by those who accompanied them. Artists like Merry Clayton (chorister and soul singer of Ray Charles and The Rolling Stones), Lisa Fischer (Tina Turner, Sting, The Rolling Stones and Nine Inch Nails), Judith Hill (Michael Jackson), Darlene Love (Phil Spector) and Tata Vega (Elton John), among others, finally get the recognition they deserved through this film that has already been awarded the Oscar and the Independent Spirit Award for Best Documentary and was also nominated for Grand Jury Prize in the Sundance Film Festival 2014.

An indispensable video recording with interesting archival material and testimonials from the likes of Bruce Springsteen, David Bowie, Sting and Stevie Wonder, among others, which will delight those who enjoyed Standing in the Shadows of Motown (Paul Justman) or The Wrecking Crew (Denny Tedesco), as well as music-lovers with its lavish soundtrack, which includes gems like Walk on the Wild side (Lou Reed) and Gimme Shelter (the Rolling Stones).
