originally published: 05/05/2020

Greenwich Entertainment Reveals Official Trailer For The Upcoming Documentary ‘Gordon Lightfoot: If You Could Read My Mind’The official trailer and poster were revealed for the documentary Gordon Lightfoot: If You Could Read My Mind - an exploration of the career, music and influence of the Canadian musical icon, which will be released later this summer via Greenwich Entertainment. 

With unprecedented access to the artist, directors Martha Kehoe and Joan Tosoni chart Gordon Lightfoot's profound evolution from Christian choirboy to troubled troubadour, international star and beloved Canadian icon with 5 Grammy Nominations and over 10 million albums sold. The film is an intimate and emotional examination of Lightfoot's relationship to his music while intertwining his indelible legacy and unpacking key songs within the cultural history of folk and rock music along the way.

Produced by Insight Productions, the documentary takes audiences from high school auditoriums in straight-laced, small town Ontario in the ‘50s to the coffee houses of Toronto’s Yorkville and NYC’s Greenwich Village in the ‘60s, through Gordon’s turbulent, substance-fueled arena shows of the ‘70s, and finally to the artist - older, wiser - in present day. The documentary features interviews with multiple generations of Lightfoot fans, in and outside the music industry - from Steve Earle and Sarah McLachlan, to Alec Baldwin and Geddy Lee - as well as behind the scenes stories from members of his longtime band.

Following Lightfoot’s evolution from Christian choirboy to troubled troubadour to international star and beloved Canadian icon, Gordon Lightfoot: If You Could Read My Mind is an intimate and emotional examination of the artist’s profound relationship to his music and his Canadian roots. 

Gordon Lightfoot: If You Could Read My Mind, a CBC Docs and documentary Channel Original, is presented by Greenwich Entertainment and Insight Productions in association with Canada Media Fund, Slaight Communications, Telefilm Canada and the Rogers Group of Funds through the Theatrical Documentary Program and with the participation of the Canada Media Fund, the Rogers Cable Network Fund and the Rogers Documentary Fund.
