In honor of legendary documentary filmmaker Albert Maysles' 85th birthday and the release of his new film 'The Love We Make', a collaboration with Paul McCartney, the Maysles Cinema presents a very special, one night only, screening of the director's cut of the Maysles' Brothers' documentary 'What's Happening: The Beatles in the USA". Followed by a Q&A with Albert Maysles.
"What's Happening! The Beatles in the USA"
(Dirs. Albert and David Maysles, 1964, 81 min.)
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. Inspiring Richard Lester's 'A Hard Day's Night' (1964), 'What's Happening! The Beatles in the U.S.A.' was subsequently rereleased by Apple Corps. in an edited version as 'The Beatles: The First US Visit' (1999).
Post Screening Q&A with Albert Maysles.
