George Harrison: Living in the Material World focuses the imaginative and inspired eye of one of cinema’s most preeminent filmmakers on one of the world’s most influential men.
The film takes viewers on the musical and spiritual voyage that was Harrison’s life, much of it told in his own words. Academy Award®-winning director Martin Scorsese traces Harrison’s life from his musical beginnings in Liverpool through his life as a musician, a seeker, a philanthropist, and filmmaker.
Scorsese weaves together interviews with Harrison and his closest friends, performances, home movies, and photographs. Much of the material in the film has never been seen (or heard) before.
The film includes interviews with Eric Clapton, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, George Martin, Paul McCartney, Yoko Ono, Tom Petty, Phil Spector, Ringo Starr and Jackie Stewart. They speak honestly and frankly about Harrison’s many talents and contradictions.
Earlier this year, the film was honored with the Critic’s Choice Award for Best Documentary Feature and short-listed for the British Academy of Film and Television Arts Award for Best Documentary Film.
