Event Details

Join us for a discussion with Producers Paul Saltzman and David Elstein about Meeting The Beatles in India. An exhibit of Paul Saltzman's legendary photographs from Rishikesh, 1968 — some of the most intimate photos of John, Paul, George, and Ringo ever taken.

*** Coming to The Betsy this winter. ***

These events are presented collaboratively by The Betsy Hotel, Florida International University, Miami Beach Urban Studios, and other community partners.

Paul Saltzman is an international award–winning film director, writer, and producer of over three hundred dramas and documentaries, and is the founder and CEO of the nonprofit organization Moving Beyond Justice. In 1968, Paul was in Rishikesh, India, studying transcendental meditation, with camera in tow. There too at Maharishi Mahesh Yogi’s ashram in the foothills of the Himalayas, were (coincidentally) the Beatles. As it turns out, Paul quickly became part of their inner circle and captured some of the most intimate images of John, Paul, Ringo, and George ever taken. A documentary of his experience, The Beatles in India (released on Gathr Films),  was released in 2020. Saltzman’s iconic photos will be presented in an exhibition called Inner Light: The Beatles in India, at The Betsy during the 2020/21 season.

David Keith Elstein is an executive producer at Portobello Films and Chairman of  In his storied global career, he has produced, directed or executive produced over 400 documentaries, current affairs programs and dramas for the BBC, ITV, Channel 4, PBS, HBO and Sky. Other credits include The World At War (producer/director) a Primetime Emmy for limited drama series for Concealed Enemies, and a Gemini (Canadian Emmy) 1989 for best dramatic series Glory Enough For All. His most recent feature film involvement was with the Oscar-winning "Ida".
