In 2010, as the world remembers John Lennon on what would have been his 70th birthday, and the 30th anniversary of his death, AMERICAN MASTERS proudly presents LENNONYC, a new film that takes an intimate look at the time Lennon, Yoko Ono and their son, Sean, spent living in New York City during the 1970s. LENNONYC features never-before heard studio recordings and never-before-seen outtakes from Lennon in concert and home movies that have only recently been transferred to video. It also features exclusive interviews with Yoko Ono, as well as with artists who worked closely with Lennon during this period, including Elton John and photographer Bob Gruen.
John Lennon,Yoko Ono
In October 2010, John Lennon would be 70 years old. In December 2010, he will have been dead for 30-years. Yet, his art still haunts us. LENNONYC explores and celebrates the arc of Lennon's solo career, the art and the choices that his and Yoko Ono's intense creative and personal collaboration produced is a major focus. With unprecedented and exclusive cooperation from Yoko Ono, access to never-before seen material from the Lennon archives and conversations with his closest people - Yoko, Elton John, the photographer Bob Gruen, Ringo - LENNONYC is singularly poised to tell John Lennon's story as it has never been told before - and as it will never be told again.
