Hallelujah: Leonard Cohen, A Journey, A Song
HALLELUJAH: LEONARD COHEN, A JOURNEY, A SONG (2021)
HALLELUJAH: LEONARD COHEN, A JOURNEY, A SONG is 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.
Produced by Dayna Goldfine and Dan Geller. Executive Produced by Jonathan Dana, Morgan Neville, Robert Kory, Michael Drews, and Robin Sagon.
