When filmmaker Michael Epstein decided to take a fresh look at the life of John Lennon, he knew that New York City would be his backdrop. Epstein says one of the most important things to tell the story of a person's life is geography.
In the last decade of his life, John Lennon spent most of his time in New York City. Much of his iconic solo work, including Woman, Mind Games and I'm Losing You, was written at his home on Manhattan's Upper West Side. Filmmaker Michael Epstein joins us to discuss his new documentary, LENNONNYC, and tell us about New York City's impact on Lennon - and Lennon's on the city.
