Representation of Former Beatle, John Lennon & His Wife, Yoko Ono
Wildes' father, Leon Wildes (seen on left of John Lennon) is best known
for his successful representation of former Beatle John Lennon and his
wife Yoko Ono in deportation proceedings spanning a five year period.
The documentary, "The U.S. vs John
Lennon" covers the period 1966-1976 and tells the story of John Lennon's
transformation from beloved musical artist to anti-war activist to iconic
inspiration for peace, and recounts the story of the U.S. Government's
efforts to silence him. The U.S. vs. John Lennon will also show that this
was not just an isolated episode in American history, but that the issues
and struggles of that era remain relevant today.
