John Lennon 1969 on Peace and Non-Violence
In 1969, a 14-year-old Beatle fanatic named Jerry Levitan, armed with a reel-to-reel tape deck, snuck into John Lennon’s hotel room in Toronto and convinced John to do an interview. This was in the midst of Lennon’s „bed-in“ phase, during which John and Yoko were staying in hotel beds in an effort to promote peace.
38 years later, Jerry has produced a film about it. Using the original interview recording as the soundtrack for Lennon’s boundless wit, and timeless message for Peace by peaceful means.
