John Lennon And Yoko Ono : Above Us Only Sky

Director Michael Epstein
United Kingdom / 90 min. / 2018 / English


The definitive chronicle of the recording of the Imagine album is also an intimate day-to-day portrait and the political awakening of Lennon alongside Yoko Ono. 

 

Above Us Only Sky introduces us to John and Yoko in 1970, installed in their brand-new Georgian mansion in Tittenhurst Park (Ascot), far from London, from the press and from the painful separation of the Beatles. Sorting, contextualizing and rescuing out-takes from the Imagine movie and the documentary Gimme Some Truth, this ambitious audio-visual chronicle boldly how they shaped his second and iconic album: from the construction of his private musical studio to the creation of the songs at the hand of George Harrison, the producer Phil Spector and old comrades like Alan White and Klaus Voorman. Through a maelstrom of archival material and the testimony of photographers, gardeners, journalists and personal assistants, the documentary also captures the daily life of John, Yoko and his son Julian in the English countryside, as well as the rise of his political and pacifist activism. A real gem, even for the most clued-up "Beatlemaniacs".
