We are very proud of our collaboration with award-winning British film director Nick Broomfield on his latest documentary ‘Marianne & Leonard : Words of Love’. The film is being premiered at Sundance Film Festival this week and features music from one of our artists, Native American Flute.
The documentary is an illustration of the twists and turns of a complicated relationship that produced some of Leonard Cohen’s most famous songs including “So Long, Marianne” and “Bird on the Wire.” It is a beautiful yet tragic love story that resists conventional structure, slipping back and forth in time between the lives of the two protagonists.
Broomfield, whose past films include “Whitney: Can I Be Me” and “Kurt & Courtney” introduced the film by calling it his first love story. He himself had a love affair with Marianne Ihlen in 1968, she encouraged him to make his first documentary and became his muse as well as Leonard Cohen’s who loved her until the day he died.
Congratulations to our Rehegoo artist, Native American Flute, on your feature!
