Inspired by Ajoy Bose’s book Across The Universe – The Beatles in India, producer Reynold D’Silva, Founder and CEO of Silva Screen Music Group, has taken this engaging story further by producing Bose’s directorial debut. Bose and cultural researcher, co-director Pete Compton, have created an audio-visual presentation that stands apart from the many documentaries produced about the band, delving deep into the most crucial period of their evolution from the world’s most famous pop stars, into multi-faceted pioneering musical artists.
Jonathan Ford, Managing Director at AMR comments, “We’re thrilled to see such early interest in this extraordinary documentary. Using rare archival footage, an array of unseen recordings and photographs, eye-witness accounts and stunning location shoots across India, The Beatles and India energetically reveals a fascinating journey which was to have a profound impact on The Beatles’ spiritual lives and their music.”
Reynold D’Silva, Founder and CEO of Silva Screen Music Group adds, "We have been delighted at the response with the cinema showings at the Everyman Music Film Festival and are looking forward greatly to this film being shown to a wider audience this autumn. The universal appeal of the subject has been one of our main aims in creating this project and we are sure it will strike a resonant chord with audiences".
