This charming and insightful documentary offers a definitive exploration of singer-songwriter Leonard Cohen as seen through the prism of his internationally renowned hymn, Hallelujah. Discover the song’s dramatic journey from record label reject to chart-topping hit alongside 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. A must-see for Cohen fans.
