She was witness to the evolution – advances and setbacks, breakthroughs and challenges – of the greatest band in history. Deemed “Oscar-worthy” by Atlanta Magazine and “a slyly humorous and insightful portrait” by Filmmaker Magazine, the film is one of few documentaries with the support of the living Beatles and features original Beatles music.
An inspiring film that recounts an important chapter in American history as well as how the Cold War and the creation of the atomic bomb were seen from a woman's perspective. The filmmaker M.T.

Presented by the Neenah Historical Society and co-sponsored by the Neenah Public Library.
