I Met the Walrus (an animated film with John Lennon)

Back in 1969, 14-year-old Beatles fanatic Jerry Levitan snuck into John Lennon's hotel room in Toronto. Armed with a reel-to-reel tape deck, Levitan convinced Lennon to do an interview.

38 years later, director Josh Raskin has created a hauntingly beautiful animated film using Levitan's original interview recording. Using the "Yellow Submarine"-inspired pen work of James Braithwaite and digital illustrations of Alex Kurina, "I Met the Walrus" perfectly encapsulates Lennon's prescient thoughts on politics and peace.
