WATCH! Yoko Ono releases 1969 documentary Bed Peace
Ono has released the film to "give encouragement and inspiration to the activists of today"
A documentary filmed by John Lennon and Yoko Ono in 1969 surfaced on the internet today.
Released by Ono to "give encouragement and inspiration to the activists of today", Bed Peace depicts the couple's famous bed-based protest against the Vietnam war.
The film will remain online only until 21 August. Explaining her reasons for posting it, Ono said:
In 1969, John and I were so naive 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."
