In 1969, a 14-year-old Beatle fanatic named Jerry Levitan, armed with a reel-to-reel tape deck, sneaked into John Lennon's hotel room in Toronto and convinced Lennon to do an interview on his thoughts about peace. 38 years later, Levitan has produced a film about the meeting. Using the original interview recording as the soundtrack, director Josh Raskin has woven a visual narrative of Lennon's words in a cascading flood of animation.

    I am so glad this man was brave enough to sneak into The hotel room he was staying in to record this audio interview session with Lennon. Just Purely amazing, and by luck. And that it survived to this day is truly Impeccable. I hope to god that other people watch this and understand what is happening in today's society. Not just the U.S. with our economy but entirely. As a whole this earth and all the continents and colonies have gone to shit. We need to take a stand to all the violence and War this civilization as created and forced upon itself.
