HALLELUJAH: Leonard Cohen, A Journey, A Song

Sat 1 Oct - Sun 2 Oct (14:00 – 18:30)

Cumbernauld Theatre Cinema
Event cinema

A definitive exploration of singer-songwriter Leonard Cohen as seen through the prism of his internationally renowned hymn, Hallelujah.

Released by Sony Pictures in cinemas in the UK and Ireland on 16 September, this feature-length documentary weaves together three creative strands: the songwriter and his times; the song’s journey from record label reject to chart-topping hit; and moving testimonies from major recording artists for whom Hallelujah has become a personal touchstone, such as Jeff Buckley, Joan Wasser, Rufus Wainwright, Regina Spektor and Judy Collins. 

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. 

You look around and you see a world that cannot be made sense of. You either raise your fist, or you say hallelujah.

LEONARD Cohen
