The Beatles’s 1968 journey to India to study meditation at the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi’s ashram left lasting personal and musical impressions on the band. It was there that fellow visitor Paul Saltzman, then a young photographer, captured the Fab Four in an iconic series of photographs. In this illuminating documentary, Saltzman recalls his encounter with the Beatles, delving into the making of their subsequent White Album, meeting with experts and associates (including the real-life Bungalow Bill), and bringing new light to a pivotal moment in the band’s career.
