Martin Scorsese's George Harrison Documentary 'Living In The Material World' Trailer

Directed by Martin Scorsese, this is the trailer for George Harrison: Living In The Material World. 'Living in the Material World' explores the legendary musician's storied career using previously unseen archival materials and movies, as well as revealing interviews with Paul McCartney, Terry Gilliam, Eric Clapton and more.

In Living in the Material World, Scorsese uses never-before-seen footage from George Harrison’s childhood, throughout his years with The Beatles, through the ups and downs of his solo career, and through the joys and pain of his private life, to trace the arc of George’s journey from his birth in 1943 to his passing in 2001. Living in the Material World features private home videos, photos and never before heard tracks to chronicle the incredible story of the extraordinary man.

Despite its epic reach, the film is deeply personal. Ringo Starr, Eric Clapton, Paul McCartney, Yoko Ono, Olivia and Dhani Harrison, among many others, talk openly about George’s many gifts and contradictions and reveal the lives they shared together. In every aspect of his professional, personal and spiritual life, until his final hours, George blazed his own path.

As his friend John Lennon once said: "George himself is no mystery. But the mystery inside George is immense. It’s watching him uncover it all little by little that’s so damn interesting."

The film will be screened for one night only in UK and Irish cinemas on Tuesday 4th October.

The documentary is then released 10 October on DVD, Blu-ray, and as a Deluxe Edition, which includes 2 DVDs, a Blu-ray, a 96-page book and a CD of never-before-released tracks. It also airs over 2 nights on HBO in the US on October 5th and 6th.
