I Met the Walrus

 

Nel 1969 un fan quattordicenne dei Beatles di nome Jerry Levitan, armato di un registratore a cassetta, si infilò di nascosto nella stanza d’albergo di Toronto dove alloggiava John Lennon e convinse John a rilasciargli un’intervista sul tema della pace. 38 anni dopo Jerry ha realizzato un cortometraggio su questa storia. Usando l’intervista originale come colonna sonora, il regista Josh Raskin ha intessuto una narrativa per immagini che romanticizza con delicatezza ognuna delle parole di Lennon in un flusso di sfacettate animazioni. Raskin sposa il geniale lavoro a penna di James Braithwaite con le stupende illustrazioni digitali di Alex Kurina, creando un vascello incantato per il genio sregolato di Lennon e per il suo messaggio senza tempo“.
Questo è il cortometraggio animato I Met the Walrus (il titolo è ovviamente un riferimento alla canzone “I am the Walrus”, dell’album Magical Mistery Tour), e tutti i fan dei Beatles lo troveranno bello tanto da essere quasi commovente. Dopo il video troverete una parte della trascrizione in inglese dell’interessante intervista. [via Neatorama]

Levitan: “John could you please tell us what the situation is with you and your entry into the United States?”

Lennon: “A lot of people don’t want me in – they think I’m going to cause a violent revolution, which I’m not. And the others don’t want me in because they don’t want me to cause peace either, because… war is big business, y’know, and they like war because it keeps them fat and happy. And I’m anti-war so they’re trying to keep me out. But I’ll get in, because they’ll have to own up in public that they’re against peace.”

Levitan: “What can we as the youth of Toronto, what can we do to try to help you?”

Lennon: “Uh, help me by helping yourselves. The militant revolutionaries; ask ‘em to show you one revolution that turned out to be what it promised, militantly… Let’s take Russia, France, anywhere they’re at it. All they do is smash the place down and then they build it up again and the people who build it up hang onto it and then they become the establishment. And you guys are going to be the establishment in a few years. It’s not worth knocking it down because it’s convenient to have the rooms and the machinery. The thing is to protest, but protest non-violently – ‘cuz violence begets violence, y’know, and if you run around wild you get smacked. And that’s it, y’know? That’s the law of the universe. And they’ve got all the weapons, they’ve got all the money, and they know how to fight violence because they’ve been doing it throughout the years, suppressing us. And the only thing they don’t know about is non-violence and humor. And there’s many ways of promoting peace. Do everything for peace. Kiss for peace. Or smile for peace. Or go to school for peace. Or don’t go to school for peace. Whatever you do, just do it for peace. It’s up to the people. You can’t blame it on the government and say they’re doing this and they’re going to put us into war. We put ‘em there. And we allow it. Y’know, and we can change it. If we really want to change it, we can change it.”

Levitan: “What about Paul, Ringo, and George?”

Lennon: “We’re all four individuals and George… is doing it his own way. The way he goes about his life (he says:) it’s no good shouting on the street corner “I want peace” – and then beating up your mate. You better try to work your own head out and get non-violent. And it’s probably hard because we’re all violent inside. We’re all Hitler inside and we’re all Christ inside. And it’s just to try to work on the good bit in you.”
