LAUREL CANYON: A PLACE IN TIME
DOCLANDS 2020 AUDIENCE CHOICE AWARD
US 2020, 80 min Director ALISON ELLWOOD
Nestled in the Hollywood Hills, high above the hustle and bustle of Sunset Boulevard, the woodsy community of Laurel Canyon in Los Angeles became home to a who’s who of the nascent rock-and-roll musical scene in the mid-to-late 1960s. The Mamas and the Papas, Joni Mitchell, Jackson Browne, Linda Ronstadt, Jim Morrison, Frank Zappa, and Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young all lived for a time in this magical place, hanging out at each other’s houses making great music together. Alison Ellwood (The Go-Go’s) brings together a highly entertaining array of contemporary interviews, home movie footage, and vintage performance clips to create the experience we have all been waiting for: a free pass to the coolest living room assemblage of musicians imaginable.
ALISON ELLWOOD’s feature film directing credits include American Jihad; History of the Eagles: Parts I and II; Spring Broke; and Magic Trip: Ken Kesey’s Search for a Kool Place. Her television credits include CNN’s Death Row Stories, Locked In for ESPN’s 30 for 30 series, No Limits for ESPN’s Nine for IX series, The Human Behavior Experiments, The Travelers, Sixteen, and the Emmy®-winning series American High.
