On 1st June, 1967 The Beatles released their ground-breaking studio album…Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band.
Described by Rolling Stone magazine as “The most important rock & roll album ever made”, it marked a pivotal moment in the 60’s and went on to become one of the biggest selling records of all time. Combining firsthand accounts of the events with rare and unseen footage forensically unearthed from mainstream archives and private collectors, this new music documentary by acclaimed director Alan G. Parker, picks up on the band as they end their grueling tour schedule in August 1966 (coincidentally following on from Ron Howard’s Eight Days A Week) to return to the studio to record this landmark album.
This insightful and revealing film journeys through various solo projects to the release of ‘Strawberry Fields Forever / Penny Lane’, touching on Flower Power, John Lennon meeting Yoko Ono, LSD, Meditation, Jimi Hendrix, the death of Brian Epstein, Abbey Road Studios and the Magical Mystery Tour.
Directed by Alan G. Parker, an Emmy nominated music director whose credits include: Hello Quo, Monty Python: Almost The Truth / Who Killed Nancy? / Rebel Truce: The History Of The Clash).
