The Hollywood Theatre and Nationale proudly present an evening of film and music celebrating the songs of Leonard Cohen. The event, which is part of our Sound & Vision Festival, will start with a screening of New Skin for the Old Ceremony, a program of 11 short movies curated by Lorca Cohen and Darin Klein and initially shown at the Hammer Museum. Featuring filmmakers Theo Angell, Peter Coffin, Weston Currie, Brent Green, Alex da Corte, Christian Holstad, Sylvan & Lily Lanken, Lucky Dragons, Brett Milspaw, Kelly Sears, and Tina Tyrell.
For the second part of the evening, Nationale has asked six local, favorite musicians to collaborate on a few of Cohen’s songs. We hope you will join us to hear this amazing line-up: Neal Morgan (Joanna Newsome, Bill Callahan) + Robin Pecknold (Fleet Foxes), Katie Bernstein (Houndstooth, The Hunnies) + John Gnorski (Houndstooth, Inside Voices), Davis Hooker (A John Henry Memorial, …Worms) + Laurel
