(Youtube Direktbed, via Art Threat)

Yoko Ono hat eine Doku über ihr Bed-In vor vierzig Jahren mit John Lennon bei Youtube hochgeladen, die wird allerdings heute nacht (bei uns wohl morgen früh irgendwann) wieder gelöscht. Ich ersetze das dann mit einem Bild von Lennon. Peace!

[update] Madame Ono-Lennon lässt die Doku eine Woche länger online. Toll! „I have had so many of you contact me and ask if we can keep BED PEACE playing for longer, so I have decided to extend the deadline for another week — until midnight on 21st August — so everyone can get a chance to see it.“

Dear Friends,

In 1969, John and I were so naïve to think that doing the Bed-In would help change the world.
Well, it might have. But at the time, we didn't know.

It was good that we filmed it, though.
The film is powerful now.
What we said then could have been said now.

In fact, there are things that we said then in the film, which may give some encouragement and inspiration to the activists of today. Good luck to us all.

Let's remember WAR IS OVER if we want it.
It's up to us, and nobody else.
John would have wanted to say that.

Love, yoko

ABOUT THIS EXCLUSIVE SCREENING OF BED PEACE

BED PEACE is FREE to watch exclusively here on YouTube and IMAGINEPEACE.com for ONE WEEKEND ONLY, ending at midnight (NY time) on Sunday 14th August 2011.

ABOUT BED PEACE

1969 was the year that John & Yoko intensified their long running campaign for World Peace. They approached the task with the same entrepreneurial expertise as an advertising agency selling a brand of soap powder to the masses. John & Yoko's product however was PEACE, not soft soap, and they were determined to use any slogan, event and gimmick in order to persuade the World to buy it.

BED PEACE (directed by Yoko & John and filmed by Nic Knowland) is a document of the Montreal events and features John & Yoko in conversation with, amongst others, The World Press, satirist Al Capp, activist Dick Gregory, comedian Tommy Smothers, protesters at Berkeley's People's Park, Rabbi Abraham L. Feinberg, quiltmaker Christine Kemp, psychologists Timothy Leary & Rosemary Leary, CFOX DJs Charles P. Rodney Chandler & Roger Scott, producer André Perry, journalist Ritchie York, DJ & Promoter Murray The K, filmmaker Jonas Mekas, publicist Derek Taylor & personal assistant Anthony Fawcett.

Featured songs are Plastic Ono Band's GIVE PEACE A CHANCE & INSTANT KARMA, Yoko's REMEMBER LOVE & WHO HAS SEEN THE WIND & John's acoustic version of BECAUSE.
