“Eminently compelling . . . fantastically edited.”–GeekRex

The illustrious career of the renowned Scottish-born photographer Harry Benson is charted in this charming and cheeky documentary. Benson received initial attention having accompanied The Beatles to cover their inaugural trip the U.S. in 1964. With unprecedented access, Benson captured some the most vibrant and unguarded portraits ever taken of the most popular band in history.

His extensive portfolio includes Winston Churchill, Bobby Fischer, Muhammad Ali, Greta Garbo, Michael Jackson, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr, and the Robert F. Kennedy assassination. His work has appeared in Life, Vanity Fair, and The New Yorker. At 86, he has no intention of stopping. 2015, U.S., DCP, 89 minutes. Recommended for 13+
