HBO Latin America will premiere the exclusive documentary George Harrison: Living in the Material World on June 3rd in the Caribbean, with part two airing the next day. Academy Award®-winning director Martin Scorsese traces the legendary Beatles member’s life from his musical beginnings in Liverpool through his life as a musician, a spiritual seeker, a philanthropist and a filmmaker, weaving together interviews with Harrison and his closest friends, along with performance footage, home movies and photographs.

Much of the material has never been seen or heard before and was provided by his widow, Olivia Harrison, one of the producers of this epic project. The result is a rare and enlightening glimpse into the mind and soul of one of the most accomplished, talented and thoughtful artists of recent generations.

The film includes interviews with fellow Beatles Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr, as well as Eric Clapton, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, George Martin, Yoko Ono, Tom Petty, Phil Spector and Jackie Stewart. They speak honestly and frankly about George’s many talents and contradictions.

Profoundly intimate and affecting, George Harrison: Living in the Material World is a must-see for Beatles fans, as well as anyone who appreciates the artistry that George Harrison brought to the world over his 56 years. As Scorsese shows in this superbly crafted biography, Harrison was a true Renaissance Man who continued to strive towards new frontiers in music and spirituality, even after achieving ultimate fame and fortune as a member of the greatest rock bands in the history of the world.

The film was directed by Scorsese; edited by David Tedeschi; produced by Scorsese, Grammy® winner Olivia Harrison and Nigel Sinclair; executive produced by Margaret Bodde, with supervising producer Blair Foster.
