Bose and his co-director and cultural researcher Pete Compton have set about “delving deep into the most crucial period of their evolution from the world’s most famous pop stars into multi-faceted pioneering musical artists.”

Artists include Vishal Dadlani, Kissnuka, Benny Dayal, Dhruv Ghanekar, Karsh Kale, Anoushka Shankar, Soulmate and many others.
They include Mother Nature’s Son, Revolution, Sexy Sadie, Dear Prudence and Child of Nature.

The upcoming movie follows the Fab Four’s recording sessions of their final album in 1970’s Let It Be.
Jackson had access to over 55 hours of footage and 140 hours of audio that are largely unseen.
The director’s film will be a revisionist approach to the original Let It Be movie and challenge the notion that the band wasn’t getting along when recording the album.
The Beatles Get Back is released in cinemas on August 27, 2021.
