What's Happening! The Beatles in the U.S.A.
Directed by Albert and David Maysles
1964, 81 min.
Screening presented by filmmaker Albert Maysles
Screening is courtesy of Apple Corps Ltd
A humorous, freewheeling and candid account of The Beatles arrival in America in February 1964. The Maysles follow the Fab Four for five days, from the crazed JFK airport reception to unguarded moments inside the Plaza Hotel in preparation for their landmark Ed Sullivan Show appearance to their equally frenzied homecoming.
Presented in conjunction with the exhibition Ladies and Gentlemen…The Beatles!
