Hallelujah: Leonard Cohen, a Journey, a Song
dir. Daniel Geller, Dayna Goldfine, USA, Canada, 2022, 115min
Singer-songwriter Leonard Cohen is seen through the prism of his internationally renowned hymn, “Hallelujah.” The documentary weaves together three strands: Cohen 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. The film accesses a wealth of never-before-seen archival materials including photographs, performance footage, and interviews.
