"Marianne & Leonard: Words of Love" — FINAL DAY

(Jul. 5-Aug. 15) — "Marianne & Leonard: Words of Love" is renowned filmmaker Nick Broomfield’s most personal and romantic film of his storied career. The documentary starts on the Greek island of Hydra in 1960, where Leonard Cohen, then a struggling and unknown fiction writer, and Marianne Ihlen, a single mother with a young son, became part of community of expat artists, writers and musicians. Never-before-seen footage shot by Broomfield and legendary documentarian D.A. Pennebaker make for a unique portrait of an idyllic 1960s bohemia. It was a time that left a lasting imprint on both Marianne and Leonard, whose friendship would last another 50 years before their deaths in 2016.

With Leonard Cohen, Marianne Ihlen, Judy Collins, Helle Goldman and Richard Vick.

Screening in the landmarked Yiddish Art Theatre building.
