Beatles Stories -- Songwriter Seth Swirsky grew up in the 1960s loving the Beatles -- their songs, their sound and their style. In 2004, he set out, video camera in hand, to talk to people who had crossed paths with his heroes. From Sir Ben Kingsley to Sir George Martin; from Beach Boy Brian Wilson to astronomer Brian Skiff, Seth filmed hundreds of personal recollections from people that knew them or those that just had an unforgettable encounter with them.
Beatles Stories -- A big fan of The Beatles growing up in the 60s, Seth Swirsky noticed that whenever he heard someone relating a story about themselves and The Beatles, he was 'all ears'. So, starting in 2005, he sought out and filmed those with never before heard, 'Beatles Stories'.

Great peek into the lives of the Beatles., 2 November 2011
Author: azskylover from Prescott Az

Anyone who is a Beatles fan will enjoy this movie. I smiled all the way through it. From the famous to the not so famous Seth Swirsky compiles a treasure chest of interviews from those who knew or had crossed path with various members of the Beatles. It really humanized John, Paul, George and Ringo for me. Also the humbleness and genuine love towards the Beatles coming from the famous people that Seth interviewed was refreshing in this day of "look at me I'm a self important celebrity". I was amazed at the variety of people that Seth got to speak about the Beatles. The filmmaker obviously did his homework. If you have a film festival in an area where you live and this is playing definitely go see this.
