The Beatles: Get Back
Directed by three-time Oscar®-winning filmmaker Peter Jackson ('The Lord of the Rings' trilogy, 'They Shall Not Grow Old'), 'The Beatles: Get Back' is a three-part documentary series that takes audiences back in time to the band’s intimate recording sessions during a pivotal moment in music history. The documentary showcases the warmth, camaraderie and creative genius that defined the legacy of the iconic foursome, compiled from over 60 hours of unseen footage shot in January 1969 (by Michael Lindsay-Hogg) and more than 150 hours of unheard audio, all of which has been brilliantly restored. Jackson is the only person in 50 years to have been given access to these private film archives. 'The Beatles: Get Back' is the story of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr as they plan their first live show in over two years, capturing the writing and rehearsing of 14 new songs, originally intended for release on an accompanying live album. The documentary features – for the first time in its entirety – The Beatles’ last live performance as a group, the unforgettable rooftop concert on London’s Savile Row, as well as other songs and classic compositions featured on the band’s final two albums, 'Abbey Road' and 'Let It Be'. Some flashing lights sequences or patterns may affect photosensitive viewers.
