Saturday, October 9 would’ve been John Lennon‘s 70th birthday. Fans will have the opportunity to gather in New York City’s Central Park on that evening to see a special screening of LENNONYC, a new documentary by American Masters, which is produced in association with WNET. The film takes a look at Lennon’s life and work in New York City with his wife Yoko Ono and son Sean.The film will make its television debut on November 22. The clip above, via Thirteen.org, is an excerpt from the film.
DKC, which has been helping with promotions for the film since August, has also worked with WNET on other documentaries, and has also worked with PBS on movies such as the recent Ken Burns film Baseball. For the firm, the task was to plug into the conversation that already exists around John Lennon.
