1h 36m | Documentary

A unique historical chronicle of the enduring love affair between The Beatles and India that started more than half a century ago.

Rare archival footage, photographs and eye-witness accounts, along with location shoots across India, bring alive the fascinating journey of George Harrison, John Lennon, Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr from their high-octane celebrity lives in the West to a remote Himalayan ashram in search of spiritual bliss — a time that inspired an unprecedented burst of creative songwriting. This is the first serious exploration of how India helped shape the evolution of the iconic band, and how they helped bridge two vastly different cultures.

Inspired by Ajoy Bose's book Across the Universe.
