REEL TO REEL: WONDERWALL & WONDERWALL MUSIC

GRAMMY Museum

800 W. Olympic Blvd, 800 W. Olympic Blvd, 0

7:30pm

Since its premiere at the Cannes Film Festival in 1968, Wonderwall has remained one of the quintessential films of the psychedelic movement. In March 2014, director Joe Massot's psychedelic classic was released on DVD and Blu-ray in a restored Collector's Edition, courtesy of Fabulous Films and Shout! Factory. On September 23, George Harrison's remastered and expanded soundtrack album for the film, Wonderwall Music, will be released by Capitol/UMe, individually and in The Apple Years 1968-75, a new 8-disc and digital collection of Harrison's six Apple solo albums. Wonderwall's kaleidoscope of images set to Harrison's predominantly instrumental soundtrack, an intricate, vibrant tapestry of Western rock music and compositions in an Indian classical style, catapult the audience into a lost world of innocence, where love and laughter reign supreme. Set in swinging 1960s London, Wonderwall is the story of a reclusive professor Oscar Collins (Jack MacGowran), who becomes infatuated with beautiful model Penny Lane (Jane Birkin), the girlfriend of a Svengali-like photographer (Iain Quarrier). To rescue Penny, the professor enters the magical realm of the Wonderwall, and returns to his laboratory a changed man. The Collector's Edition features an all-new print, a high-definition restoration by the Pinewood Studios film restoration team, as well as the re-edited Director's Cut, plus an extensive booklet featuring essays, historical analysis and production history. Dhani Harrison has overseen the restoration and remastering of George Harrison's Apple albums by a GRAMMY® Award-winning team of engineers including Paul Hicks, Gavin Lurssen, and Reuben Cohen. Following the screening, The GRAMMY Museum's executive director Bob Santelli and Emmy-nominated music journalist and TV writer David Wild will discuss the film and George Harrison's music.
