With mesmerizing archival footage, Martin Scorsese’s  documentary on the Beatles’ lead guitarist—and of one of the greatest musicians of the 1960s and ’70s—traces in detail all aspects of Harrison’s professional and personal life. Friends (Eric Clapton, Eric Idle), family (wives Patti Boyd and Olivia Harrison), and band mates (Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr) reflect on Harrison’s mid-’60s embrace of Indian mysticism and music, which forever changed the sound of the Fab Four.

Harrison’s spirituality defined his solo work, especially the 1970 triple album All Things Must Pass, produced by Phil Spector.
Until his untimely death in 2001, Harrison remained fiercely committed to his music and other passions (including film producing), earning the admiration of all who were lucky enough to work with him.

Premiered at NY Film Festival last October 20911, with Director Martin Scorsese and Paul McCartney, the movie-documentary is inter-cut with archive material, friends, family and associates of the musician tell the story of his life and how spirituality became such a major part of it, following Harrison’s story from his early life in Liverpool, the success of the Beatles, his travels to India and more.

It consists of previously unseen footage and interviews with Yoko Ono, George Maritn, Olivia and Dhani Harrison, Pattie Boyd, Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, Eric Clapton, Klaus Voormann, Jeff Lynne, Phil Spector, Tom Petty & more..
