About The Documentaries


Imagine: John Lennon, is a 1988 documentary film with a wealth of stock Lennon footage, and self-narration, proved to be a well-received film.  It Bridges his two musical phases together as a member of The Beatles, and as a solo artist.  It is a career-spanning collection of Lennon's many musical highlights. In addition, there are a couple of heretofore unreleased recordings: an acoustic demo of "Real Love" taped in 1979, (an alternate recording of which would be finished by the Beatles for 1996's Anthology ) and a rehearsal take of "Imagine" in mid-1971, before the final take was captured.

INSIDE JOHN LENNON is an intimate account of the life and career of the most controversial Beatle. From his difficult beginnings in wartime Liverpool, to riding the wave of Beatlemania, and to becoming a peace activist with his outspoken soul mate, Yoko Ono.  John packed a lot into his forty short years.  John sister, Julia, recounts her touching and revealing experiences with John. Find out how it felt playing alongside John, from the Quarry Men themselves. Hear anecdotes from The Beatles' first manager, Allan Williams. And, of course, there is frank, witty, and sometimes blunt commentary from Lennon himself.

LennoNYC is a 2010 documentary film written and directed by Michael Epstein, about the life of John Lennon in New York City, after the breakup of the Beatles. The film premiered at the New York Film Festival, and was shown at a free public screening in Central Park on October 9, which would have been Lennon's 70th birthday. It first aired on the PBS series American Masters on November 22, and received a Peabody Award in 2010.
