Leonard Cohen (the subject of the documentary) & Lian Lunson (the director) both showed up for the premiere of “Leonard Cohen: I’m Your Man” on Saturday June 24, 2006 at the John Ford Amphitheater in Hollywood. Lian describes what happened next:
This screening was the only public screening Leonard attended. It was a windy night at the Ford amphitheater and Leonard and i sat alone behind the screen with a bottle of wine. The audience could not see us. And, because we were watching the film from behind the screen the film was reversed. It was beautiful to see it that way.
Thanks to Lian Lunson for her charming account of this scene and for permission to use the photo atop this post.
