Storyline

In 1969, a 14-year-old Beatle fanatic named Jerry Levitan, armed with a reel-to-reel tape deck, snuck into John Lennon's hotel room in Toronto and convinced John to do an interview about peace. Using the original interview as the soundtrack, this narrative tenderly romances Lennon's every word in a cascading flood of multi-pronged animation. Written by Sundance Film Festival

Based on a recording taken by a 14 year old boy interviewing John Lennon; this short gives a fascinating insight into the mind of the legendary musician, his views on capitalism and attitude toward promoting peace.

The recording is over-layed with an animation which humorously realises the thought process of the boy as he delves deeper into the perplexing but compelling world of his idol.

Lasting only a few minutes, we are snapped out of John's world and back to reality when someone asks for they key to the big box. "I don't know, I have no idea where it is" replies John.
