Hot Docs favourite Dr. Mike Daley tells the incredible life story of Leonard Cohen through his best poetic, prose, lyric and, of course, musical works.
Leonard Cohen was one of the great literary and musical figures in Canadian history. From his affecting and skillful early poetry and novels to his stunning and enduring music, Cohen’s work has captivated generations of fans across the country and around the world. Best remembered for iconic musical compositions like “Hallelujah” and “Suzanne,” and for his hypnotic baritone singing voice, Cohen was also a fascinating public figure, with passionate love affairs, rich friendships and life-changing adventures in places like Israel, the Greek island of Hydra and the Zen Center in California where he became a Buddhist monk. A year after his death at 82, Cohen’s life and work are as inspirational as ever, full of keen observations and impassioned writing and music that will stand the test of time.
