Lennon: Let Him Be
The film is called Let Him Be, and it's a brand new independent Canadian movie, in which two film students believe that they have found John Lennon alive and living in a remote part of Canada.
It all begins when Tim discovers a clip of an old man playing guitar on a tape found jammed inside an old video camera his father gave him. The man in the video is older now but the resemblance to John Lennon is uncanny. Could it be him? It's an absurd idea and one that Tim might have pushed aside were it not for the fact that the man also sounds so much like him. Was it possible that Lennon survived the assassination? Tim decides to document the whole story so that no one could question or doubt what he finds.
It has it's european premiere showing at the film festival in Cardiff on November 19th.
