Rich in mesmerizing archival footage, Scorsese’s expansive documentary on Beatles’ lead guitarist George Harrison—one of the greatest musicians of the 1960s and ’70s—traces in detail all aspects of Harrison’s professional and personal life, including his embrace of Indian mysticism and music, which forever changed the sound of the Fab Four.
This event is a Maui Film Festival and Maui Tomorrow Foundation fundraiser to support Bringing Back Baldwin Beach – The “Trees Please” Project, a commitment to re-plant indigenous Hawaiian trees on Maui, starting at Baldwin Beach. “One Tree at a Time. And That Time is Now.”
Not even Scorsese’s shimmering 1978 concert film, The Last Waltz, and his galvanic 2005 documentary, No Direction Home: Bob Dylan are any real preparation for the grand scope and the depth of musical and emotional detail—never has Harrison’s music sounded so good or made so much sense—as in this stunning and mesmerizing musical tour-de-force.
The film’s stars include Olivia Harrison, Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, Ravi Shankar, Eric Idle, George Martin, Yoko Ono, Phil Spector, Klaus Voorman, Pattie Boyd and Eric Clapton among others.
The film is 208 minutes long and will include a 15-minute intermission. Food and beverages are available in the CandleLight Cafe.
Tickets are $20.
