In October 1965, The Beatles were faced with a daunting task—produce a new album of original music for a Christmas release. Within a month, The Beatles emerged with what many consider to be one of their greatest albums—Rubber Soul. Learn the stories behind the creation of “Norwegian Wood,” “In My Life,” “Nowhere Man,” and other classic Beatles songs with this in-depth multimedia exploration about the album’s creation from composer and Beatles expert Scott Freiman, filmed at the Jacob Burns Film Center.
