Sedona News – The Sedona International Film Festival is proud to present the Northern Arizona premiere of “The Lost Weekend: A Love Story” showing April 14-19 at the Alice Gill-Sheldon Theatre.
A love story that took 50 years to tell, “The Lost Weekend: A Love Story” explores the 18-month relationship (1973-1975) that John Lennon spent with May Pang, his Chinese American assistant turned lover (on Yoko Ono’s insistence).
With May’s help, Lennon reunited with his son Julian and had his most artistically and commercially productive period post-Beatles — with the albums “Mind Games”, “Walls and Bridges” which included his only #1 Hit Single “Whatever Gets You Through the Night”, “Rock and Roll” and collaborated with Elton John, David Bowie, Harry Nilsson, Mick Jagger, and Ringo to name a few.
Pang chronicles it all revisiting her younger self, a naïve 22-year old experiencing her first unforgettable love.
“The Lost Weekend: A Love Story” will be shown at the Alice Gill-Sheldon Theatre April 14-19. Showtimes will be Friday, Saturday and Sunday, April 14, 15 and 16 at 6:30 p.m.; and Monday and Wednesday, April 17 and 19 at 3:30 p.m.
