Tony Palmer’s wonderfully restored 1972 Leonard Cohen tour film, including 19 classic performances.
Captured on tour and 'off-duty' this almost lost and forgotten documentary concert film showcases one of the world's most respected singer song writers. Following Leonard Cohen on his 1972 World Tour - featuring performances in Berlin, Vienna, Copenhagen and Israel, this is an exciting release of a once controversial film, directed by legendary prize winning film maker, Tony Palmer. Fresh and exhilarating Cohen's artistry and creative force soars through 19 classic performances, including ‘Famous’, ‘Blue Raincoat’, ‘Sisters of Mercy’ and ‘So Long Mariane’ and features some of his most rousing and thought-provoking poetry. ‘Bird on a Wire’ has been painstakingly restored & reedited from recently discovered footage.
