It’s called George Harrison: Living In The Material World.  It was released on HBO.  If you don’t have HBO, you can rent or buy the digital copy on Amazon.com or purchase the Blu-ray or DVD.

It’s a really good documentary which gives you a glimpse about the artist and his creative process.

There’s also a book and apps to accompany the experience.
