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 song, “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. 
 
Featuring interviews with Judy Collins, Adrienne Clarkson, Brandi Carlile, Rufus Wainwright, Eric Church, Hal Willner, John Lissauer, Regina Spektor, Glen Hansard, Larry “Ratso” Sloman and many more.

NEW VIDEO FOR LEONARD COHEN SONG “PUPPETS” RELEASED TODAY

NEW VIDEO FOR LEONARD COHEN SONG “PUPPETS” RELEASED TODAY

VIDEO MARKS FIVE YEAR ANNIVERSARY OF LEONARD COHEN’S PASSING

“Puppets,” the final video from the posthumous album Thanks for the Dance is released today, commemorating the fifth anniversary of Cohen’s passing (November 7th, 2016).  The video marks the return of director Daniel Askill, who also created the “Happens to the Heart” video. Daniel worked closely with Leonard’s son, Adam Cohen, on this closing cinematic vision, the last of five  videos created for the album. Watch “Puppets” here.

Shot in black and white, the emotive visual features artist and actor Bobbi Salvör Menuez, also in “Happens to the Heart,” exploring Cohen’s powerful lyrical themes of evil and control. Askill is known for his artistic creations using film, photographs, video installation, and sculpture, and has directed films, commercials, fashion films, and music videos (Sia, Paul McCartney, and Lady Gaga).

“It has been such a gift to have the opportunity to create these visual responses to the music of Leonard Cohen. Cohen has an incredible ability to create a bridge between the sublime and the prosaic — the metaphysical and political. In ‘Puppets,’ he does that while addressing dark themes with a poetic insight,” said Daniel Askill of the project.  “This video for Puppets has been born out of a wonderful ongoing dialogue with Adam Cohen. It is in some ways a darker counter point to the first film we made for ‘Happens to the Heart.’ Shot on location in New York, this film follows the symbolic journey of a single figure through darkness towards a transcendence. In many ways, it is visually pointing to the idea that Leonard often beautifully evokes in different ways — that the darkness and the light of our experience is deeply entangled — and maybe at a fundamental level they are in fact one and the same.”

Released in 2019, Thanks For The Dance was an unexpected harvest of new songs from the master Leonard Cohen. Collaborating with producer (and son) Adam Cohen, friends and colleagues gathered to support and complete the work Leonard had begun, making an album that echoes the sounds of his catalogue, while remaining fresh, current, and resonant.
