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.

Directors Daniel Geller & Dayna Goldfine will be in London for three special Picturehouse Q&A sessions next week – at the Ritzy Brixton (Sept 7), Picturehouse Central London (Sept 9) and Picturehouse Finsbury Park (Sept 10). Dan and Dayna will also be joined by Robert Kory, Leonard Cohen’s former long-time manager and current head of the Cohen Family Trust, at Ritzy and Picturehouse Central.
