John & Yoko: Above Us Only Sky, which will play at the Elizabeth Picture Theatre on 8 January 2020, recounts a story of hope for a world still desperately in need of peace, justice, empathy and love. The song carries a timeless message of hope.

It features interviews with
Lennons' wife Yoko Ono,
his son, Julian Lennon,
photographer David Bailey ,
John Dunbar (Gallerist who introduced the couple),
Dan Richter (Yoko's neighbour and John's former personal assistant) and
Eddie Veale (studio designer),

Some of these figures have never spoken publicly on film before.

The film gives an insight into John and Yoko's lives and relationship with never before seen before footage of Lennon and Ono from their private archive.

The film is a must for all music lovers and those interested in the power of music to shape people and society.

The film comes nearly 30 years after John Lennon was assassinated in New York on 8 December 1980 in the archway of his residence The Dakota Building by Mark David Chapman.
