George Harrison: Living In The Material World

Eric Idle, George Harrison, Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr

Movie propaganda

The subject of endless fascination and adoration from the time he was 17, George Harrison exploded into public consciousness as a member of the most famous and beloved band ever, The Beatles. With the band, he traveled everywhere, met everybody, and achieved levels of fortune and fame only dreamed of by most. By the age of 22, he realized material success wasn’t enough: "We had lots of material things at quite an early age and we learned that wasn’t it, we still lacked something."Through his friendship with Ravi Shankar and his travels to India, George immersed himself in Indian music and philosophy. Meditation and spiritual practice became central to the rest of his life. Using rare and never before seen footage from George Harrison's childhood, throughout his years as a Beatle, through the ups and downs of his solo career, and through the joys and pain of his private life, Academy-Award winning director Martin Scorsese traces the arc of George’s journey from his birth in 1943 to his passing in 2001.
