I’m YourMan: Set to the Leonard Cohen song of the same name, this irreverent animated film plays on the conventions and cliches of romance.

(4:32) Director: Roselyn Schwartz.

Poen: In this 1967 film, Leonard Cohen reads and re-reads a prose poem from his novel Beautiful Losers as diverse photographs flash by, juxtaposing word and image for a different effect each time.

(4:35) Director: Josef Reeve.

A Kite Is A Victim: “Worthy, lyric and pure,” a line from this early Cohen poem, describes this animated short and the poetry itself.

(1:25) Director: Elizabeth Lewis.

Angel: A man, a woman and a dog take turns donning wings in this 1966 experimental film that both mocks and embodies the spirit of its decade. Featuring music and an uncredited appearance by Leonard Cohen.
