Imagine Peace

This film is a love story. It introduces the life and work of Yoko Ono, a remarkable artist who created one of her most striking and thought-provoking public artworks in Iceland: The Imagine Peace Tower.


Four years in the making, the film features interviews and footage never seen before, as well as older scenes of John and Yoko together, in private and performing in public. Yoko Ono talks about her and John Lennon’s love and life together, about the art they made together and their struggle for peace and justice, including the imaginative methods they used to get their message across: “Give peace a chance.”

Lennon’s music provides an inspirational soundtrack to a story that that began more than forty years ago and is still unfolding. In 2007, when Yoko Ono dedicated the Imagine Peace Tower to John’s memory she added: “My love for you is forever.”

A column of light rising into the sky, the tower is lit every year on John’s birthday, 9 October, and remains lit until 8 December, the day of his assassination in New York in 1980. It is dedicated to Lennon’s memory and to the message of peace that he and Yoko Ono worked to spread, and which she continues tirelessly to promote around the world: “Imagine Peace.”
