The Laurel Canyon documentary will provide an up-close look at the lives of the musicians who inhabited it. Through a wealth of rare and newly unearthed footage and audio recordings, the documentary will feature an intimate portrait of the artists who created a music revolution of the '60s and '70s that would change popular culture. Alison Ellwood (History of the Eagles) will direct the feature-length film.
Celebrating the music of Joni Mitchell, Crosby, Stills & Nash, Neil Young, Buffalo Springfield, The Byrds, Jackson Browne, Linda Ronstadt, The Mamas & The Papas, Carole King, The Doors, Frank Zappa, James Taylor, Eagles, and more, the film will be uniquely immersive and experiential, taking us back in time to a place where a rustic canyon in the heart of Los Angeles became a musical and cultural petri dish.
The film is executive produced by Frank Marshall, The Kennedy/Marshall Company; Darryl Frank and Justin Falvey, Amblin Television; Craig Kallman and Mark Pinkus, Warner Music Group; Alex Gibney, Stacey Offman and Richard Perello, Jigsaw Productions; and Jeff Pollack. The film is produced by Ryan Suffern, The Kennedy/Marshall Company, and Erin Edeiken, Jigsaw Productions.
