A love letter to one of the most famous songs in the world, the secular hymn that is now as much a mainstay in student dorm rooms as it is at funerals, weddings and even featuring in huge animated movies.
Directors Daniel Geller and Dayna Goldfine received approval from Leonard Cohen in 2014 to make this documentary, delving into Cohen’s beginnings as a poet, tracing the journey of the song over the many years it took to complete and the lasting legacy it has had for so many artists and fans.
