Although a fictionalised account of an actual trip John Lennon (Ian Hart) and Brian Epstein (David Angus) took to Barcelona in 1963, The Hours And Times is a hugely resonant piece of independent cinema that perfectly captures a short respite in the ongoing whirlwind of Beatlemania.

Prize winner at the 1992 Sundance and Berlin film festivals The Hours And Times convincingly conveys the complex emotional reality of Epstein and Lennon's strong and curious friendship. To mark the 40th anniversary of Brian Epstein's death, The Hours And Times makes its DVD debut on 227th August 2007, released by VDI Entertainment.

Made on location in Spain with black and white cinematography starkly evoking the early 1960's, the film suggests that the Beatles' brilliant but troubled middle-class manager Epstein (29), is a man hopelessly besotted with Lennon, a working class lad six years his junior, whose career is skyrocketing. Munch's audacious film debut examines the meaning of friendship in a one-hour narrative of intense dialogue between Epstein and Lennon, indeed Ian Hart's performance as Lennon was so acclaimed that he was later asked to reprise the role in the movie 'Backbeat'.
