The beautiful, enduring love story between legendary folk singer Leonard Cohen and his Norwegian muse Marianne Ihlen is explored in this film. Never-before-seen footage shot by Nick Broomfield and the late legendary documentarian D. A. Pennebaker make for a unique portrait of an idyllic 1960’s bohemia. It was a time that left a lasting imprint on both Marianne and Leonard, whose friendship would last another fifty years before their deaths in 2016.

There are 8,000 miles of sidewalks, paths and roads in New York City, and for the past six years Matt Green has been walking them all–every street, every block, every pedestrian overpass, park lane and hiking trail.
