In May 2011, Neil Young brought his solo tour to Toronto’s Massey Hall, an iconic venue in the city of his birth. Jonathan Demme was on hand to capture the two nights, which highlighted new songs from the album Le Noise, mixed with classics like Ohio and I Believe in You. At sixty-five, Young retains a youthful vitality and musical curiosity that balances his wisdom and experience. Demme intersperses the concert footage with brief scenes from a road trip through Ontario. Driving a 1956 Ford Crown Victoria, Young visits the rural town of Omemee, where he spent a key part of his formative years, and reminisces about his former neighbours and their daughters. As he drives past bulldozers transforming the landscape, he remarks, “It’s all gone… it’s still in my head.”

Neil Young Journeys is the third documentary Demme has made with Neil Young.

In original language.
