At the end of the 1960s, John Lennon was one of the most well known people in the world. As with a lot of people of his generation, he was radicalised by events such as the Vietnam War, and sexual and racial inequality. Along with his partner Yoko Ono he decided to use his fame to protest. As an inhabitant of New York in the early 1970s, he wasn't popular with the conservative US government. Indeed, President Richard Nixon went to extraordinary lengths in attempting to discredit and deport Lennon. This documentary tells that story using archive footage and interviews, recently released files and, of course, a great soundtrack.
