The 2018 Lakehead University Research & Innovation Week in Orillia features a free screening of a documentary Leonard Cohen: In His Own Words, scheduled to coincide with the 47th anniversary of the release of Leonard Cohen's third album, Songs of Love and Hate. The film offers an unmediated insight into Leonard Cohen’s thoughts on growing up, writing, love, monastic life, human condition, and ‘the third act’—some of the key themes that run through Cohen’s work and inform his philosophy of life (and death).

The screening of the film will be followed by a Q&A/discussion session.

The event will take place on March 19, 2018, at 7PM, in the Heritage Place (OA 1033), 500 University Avenue.
