Director Jonathan Demme (STOP MAKING SENSE) pays tribute to folk-rock legend Neil Young in this riveting docu-concert. Filmed at Nashvilles Ryman Auditorium, HEART OF GOLD offers an intimate portrait of this unique artist through his music and insights on family, friends, mortality, and the passage of time. The film is split into two acts; the former featuring songs from 2005s PRAIRIE WIND album, the latter drawing on four decades worth of hits, where hes joined onstage by long-time musical collaborators including country star Emmylou Harris and steel guitarist Ben Keith. For Demme--already a huge fan of the singer-songwriter--making this film was a labour of love, as he explains it, the marriage of music on film is just as thrilling as filmmaking can get for me.
