Synopsis of the movie: “Hallelujah: Leonard Cohen, a journey, a song” is a definitive exploration of singer-songwriter Leonard Cohen seen through the lens of his internationally acclaimed anthem, “Alleluia.” This feature-length documentary weaves together three creative threads: The songwriter and his times; the song’s dramatic journey from record label rejection to chart-topping hit; and moving testimonials 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 previously unseen archival material from the Cohen Trust, including Cohen’s personal notebooks, journals and photographs, performance footage and extremely rare audio recordings and interviews. .
