In January 2005, Lunson travelled to Sydney to film the historic Came So Far For Beauty show, a tribute to Leonard Cohen at the Sydney Opera House organised by famed music producer Hal Willner. This documentary includes behind-the-scenes interviews and live performances from this event by Nick Cave, Rufus Wainwright, Kate and Anna McGarrigle, Martha Wainwright, Beth Orton, Linda Thompson, Teddy Thompson, Jarvis Cocker, The Handsome Family, Julie Christensen, and Perla Batalla, as well as a special performance of Tower of Song by Cohen and U2. And in a series of candid interviews, Cohen himself reveals his trademark wry humour and soulful intensity, using his own artwork, poetry and personal collection of photographs to reflect upon his colourful past and his creative process.
