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, John, Paul and Ringo 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.
“We were recommended Halo for our post production requirements by another filmmaker,” Pete Compton the co-director comments, “and have been extremely grateful for such winning guidance. The various locations in central London have been a boon travelwise for regular visits and the front of house staff all sincerely accommodating. All the suites we used provided plenty of space and very comfortable conditions to work in. Everyone we worked with at Halo on each stage of post-production are at the top of their game and gave wonderful guidance on aspects we may well have missed. Special praise for Rachael who pulled it all together and sorted out our many requests in such an efficient and accomplished manner.”
