Laurel Canyon: A Place in Time

Laurel Canyon: A Place in Time

Celebrating the music of Joni Mitchell, Jackson Browne, Linda Ronstadt, Love, The Mamas And The Papas, Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young, The Doors, Frank Zappa and more, the film is uniquely immersive and experiential, taking us back in time to a place where a rustic canyon in the heart of Los Angeles became a musical petri dish.
