Hallelujah: Leonard Cohen, A Journey, A Song (12A) (AD)


A definitive exploration of singer-songwriter Leonard Cohen as seen through the prism of his internationally renowned hymn, “Hallelujah.”

This  feature-length documentary weaves together three creative  strands: The songwriter and his times; the song’s dramatic journey  from record label reject to chart-topping hit; and moving testimonies from major recording artists for whom “Hallelujah” has  become a personal touchstone. Approved for production by Leonard  Cohen just before his 80th birthday in 2014, the film accesses a  wealth of never-before-seen archival materials from the Cohen Trust including Cohen’s personal notebooks, journals and  photographs, performance footage, and extremely rare audio recordings and interviews.
