YELLOW SUBMARINE (1968) [Feature]

UK,USA (MIFF 2015 , Psychedelic!)
Director: George Dunning

A kaleidoscope of the weird and whimsical comes to life in the Beatles' classic pop-psychedelic animation from 1968.

Cited as a huge influence on everything from Monty Python's Flying Circus and Fantastic Planet to Sesame Street, South Park and The Simpsons, George Dunning's animated musical takes the Beatles' music at its psychedelic peak and creates a one-of-a-kind adventure that both evokes and transcends its time.

Join John, Paul, George and Ringo on board the fabled vessel as they embark on a surreal journey to save Pepperland from the meddling Blue Meanies, with a soundtrack of wall-to-wall classics such as Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds, A Day in the Life and the irrepressible title track.

"Time travel, science fiction, outer space, monsters, war and [The Beatles'] own idiom of pop music are all taken for a ride in figments of fevered imaginations." – Variety
