War theme and violence
Captured on tour and off-duty, this almost lost and forgotten documentary concert film showcases one of the world's most respected singer songwriters. Following Leonard Cohen on his 1972 World Tour that began on the 18th of March - featuring performances in Berlin, London, Paris, Stockholm, Amsterdam, Vienna, Copenhagen, and Tel Aviv this is an exciting release of a once controversial film directed by legendary prize winning film maker Tony Palmer. Fresh and exhilarating, Leonard Cohen's artistry and creative force soars through 19 classic performances including Famous Blue Raincoat, Sisters of Mercy and So Long Mariane and features some of his most rousing and thought-provoking poetry. Bird on a Wire has been painstakingly restored & reedited from recently discovered footage.
