"A winning introduction to the man's work"- The Guardian
The bard of Montreal has written songs that have struck a chord with several generations now, and his influence on modern song writing carries arguably as much weight as a Dylan or a Van Morrison. In 2005, director Lian Lunson travelled to The Sydney Opera House to capture a concert called 'Came So Far for Beauty' - a tribute to Cohen performed by contemporary artists including Nick Cave, Jarvis Cocker, Rufus Wainright and Beth Orton.
"Cohen is clearly a songwriter's songwriter, and the resulting movie brims with an infectious passion for the man's melodies and sardonic wit.'- BBC
The film also features a unique performance of the Cohen classic 'I'm Your Man' with the man himself on vocal and U2 backing him. These performances are scattered with clips of Cohen in a candid and humorous interview.
We're transforming Studio 3 in January into a cabaret-style cinema & bar to show some of our favourite ever concert films on the big screen. Seating is unallocated, and tables will be socially distanced.
