Music Documentaries at the SNFCC: Cinema with the volume turned up!
Cinema and music have long gone hand-in-hand – even before the addition of sound to film. And if it’s pictures that usually steal the show, cinema has given music an entire cinematic genre, musicals, and paid tribute to its creators through musical documentaries that have their own dedicated audience and raison d'être.
Three of those join this year’s line up of summer film projections at the SNFCC, so we can all sing along to songs that make up the soundtrack of our lives, and get ourselves into the mood for the live concerts that we hope we’ll soon be enjoying once again.
Marianne & Leonard: Words of Love (2019):
“Now so long Marianne / It’s time that we began to laugh / And cry and cry and laugh about it all again…” This emotional documentary brings to light tender details of the love of the legendary Canadian songwriter Leonard Cohen for his muse, who has been immortalized through songs such as “So Long Marianne” και “Bird on the Wire” and inspired profoundly sentimental lyrics that still resonate to this day.
Director: Nick Broomfield
