Paul Saltzman's film chronicles the band's 1968 stay in Rishikesh

The Beatles In India is a new feature-length documentary by Paul Saltzman, charting the band’s quest for enlightenment on the subcontinent in 1968.

Canadian photographer and filmmaker Saltzman was there to capture the experience first-hand, having already signed up to study meditation at Maharishi Mahesh Yogi’s ashram in Rishikesh when The Beatles arrived.

The film explores the band’s journey to India, the songs they composed at the ashram and how these eventually evolved into the White Album.

The Beatles In India will be released worldwide in the autumn.
