About this event
Nick Broomfield’s intimate, highly personal new doc explores the beautiful, yet tragic love story between Leonard Cohen and his Norwegian muse Marianne Ihlen.
Their famously binding affair began on the idyllic Greek island of Hydra, where they lived in a bohemian community of artists, writers and musicians, and evolved throughout the ‘60s as Cohen became an international star. He wrote the song ‘So Long, Marianne’ about her and when she died in 2016, penned a farewell letter to her saying he was close behind her, before dying himself just three months later. Broomfield – who himself met Marianne on Hydra – explores their love affair, the highs and lows of Cohen’s career and Marianne’s inspirational power.
“as much poetry as documentary — it’s a gentle, rhapsodic film”

Visiting Dartington Hall
Dartington is an old place with a new story.
The Dartington Experiment began in 1925 and was based on the idea that humans are many-sided – and how we need environments that encourage our whole being to flourish, in connection with nature and each other.
This idea is as true today is it ever was.
