Hallelujah: Leonard Cohen. A Journey. A Song
|September 22, 2022||Key City Theatre|
The Rockies Film Festival and Series, presented by the Rotary Club of Cranbrook Sunrise, is back! The series kicks off with HALLELUJAH: Leonard Cohen. A Journey. A Song. on Thursday, September 22 at 7 p.m. at the Key City Theatre.
The film is a defintive exploration of singer-songwriter Leonard Cohen as seen through the prism of his internationally renowed hymn "Hallelujah". This feature-length documentary weaves together three creative strands: The songwirter 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 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.
Tickets can be purchased for $15 at the Key City Theatre Box Office.
