Louisville Jewish Film Festival: Opening Night Film and Celebration featuring Hallelujah: Leonard Cohen, A Journey, A Song Live Film – SOLD OUT

February 4 @ 7:00 pm - 10:30 pm

United States
118 
minutes

A definitive exploration of singer/songwriter Leonard Cohen as seen through the prism of his internationally renowned hymn, “Hallelujah.” This feature-length documentary weaves together three  strands: the songwriter 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 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. 

Live Special Event: Our opening night of our 25th Anniversary celebration with pre-film live entertainment, hors d’oeuvres, cake and champagne beginning at 7 p.m. at the Trager Family JCC.  A highlight of the evening will feature live entertainment with Brigid Kaelin and Cantor David Lipp performing Leonard Cohen selections.
