SYNOPSIS

A time capsule of New York City between August 13-15, 1965, framed by the Beatles’ arrival in the city and their first concert at Shea Stadium. The film is narrated from the perspectives of four teenagers played by young actors and consists entirely of archival material, in which the protagonists will be inserted by means of special effects. Cinematically, it is the invention of a new film genre. The axis of a fiction film becomes inverted. Instead of building an artificial reality around actors as a signifier of historical truth, actors are inserted into the real historical images and thus sent on a trip through time.
