caro I've seen that documentary yesterday, since it's just been released in France...
It's mainly about Skip James and JB Lenoir,and it features plenty of other musicians covering their songs : Lou Reed, Bonnie Raitt, Cassandra Wilson, Eagle Eye Cherry (WTF?), Nick Cave, JSBE... So it sounds rather good, the problem being that you only hear, like, 30 seconds of each song before the film cuts to another scene. So it's quite frustrating.
Actually, it's not a very wenders-ish film : plenty of explanations, some really cheap effects, and the story moves ahead rapidly...
I'm happy I went because I didn't know anything about JB Lenoir (didn't even know the John Mayall song about him...man, I have to get some Mayall albums!). So it was cool for me to discover. But I suppose it will be a rather irritating film for those who already know both Skip James and Lenoir.

(oh, the Stones content : You can see two seconds of Mick Taylor as he goes onstage with Mayall)
