Dir Ajoy Bose, Peter Compton
UK 2021, 96 min
In EnglishIntroduction by Ivo Linna.
The film is a unique historical chronicle of the enduring love affair between The Beatles and India that started more than half a century ago.
The documentary includes rare archival footage, photographs, eye-witness accounts and expert comments, along with location shoots across India, to bring alive the fascinating journey of George, John, Paul and Ringo from their high octane celebrity lives in the West to a remote Himalayan ashram in search of spiritual bliss that inspired an unprecedented burst of creative songwriting .
It is the first serious exploration of how India shaped the evolution of the greatest ever rock band and their own pioneering role bridging two vastly different cultures across the universe.
