About the Film

Leonard Cohen, the well-known composer, and Marianne Ihlen, a struggling writer and single mother with a young son, became part of a community of expat artists, writers and musicians on the Greek island of Hydra. Never-before-seen footage shot by Broomfield and 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.
