New Mexico History Museum presents Radical Southwest: Leonard Cohen’s Bird on a Wire

BIRDONAWIRE550Simply one of the most beautiful and moving music documentaries I have ever seen. The behind-the-scenes Leonard snooping is both fascinating and hilarious.” –Telegraph

Famed documentarian Tony Palmer follows the legendary musician/songwriter/poet during his 1972 European concert tour, as he performs his classics—“Suzanne,” “Sisters of Mercy,” “Chelsea Hotel,” “Famous Blue Raincoat,” “So Long, Marianne”—and reveals himself to be the most reluctant of folk-music heroes. Never before released, this is a startling portrait of a visionary of the counterculture era. (U.K., 1972, 103m)
