This is a short film that documents Peter Dean and his team of experts, as they attempt to recreate a circus poster that inspired John Lennon to write song, “Being for the Benefit of Mr. Kite” (from the Beatles album “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band”). The movie is engaging in terms of storyline and visuals, and it was directed by Nick Esdaile and Joe Fellows.
