In 1971, John Lennon arrived in New York City and felt reborn: at last living in the country that had dominated his artistic imagination, Lennon and his new bride Yoko Ono found in the city the perfect blend of music, politics, culture, and lifestyle. But those heady first years eventually gave way to a dark period in which both Lennonís musical career and his personal life almost ran agroundóuntil once again New York City came to his rescue. Using remarkable, rarely seen footage and interviews with many who were close to John, filmmaker Michael Epstein has created a moving, revealing portrait of the music legendís New York years, detailing not only his triumphs but also some hard times over which he so beautifully recovered in the final years of his tragically curtailed life.

Michael Epstein is a documentary director, writer, and producer whose work has been nominated for an Academy Award, and been awarded a George Foster Peabody, an Emmy, and a Writers Guild Award.

Epstein's latest effort, Combat Diary: The Marines of Lima Company was nominated for a 2006 Primetime Emmy for Exceptional Merit in Non-Fiction Filmmaking. Both Newsweek and the Los Angeles Times have heralded Combat Diary as the best film about the Iraq War.

Since 1998 he has run his own production company, Viewfinder Productions, Inc., which has produced innovative programming for PBS, Trio, A&E, and The History Channel.
