Explore the career, music, and influence of Canadian songwriting legend Gordon Lightfoot.


This sold-out Hot Docs ’19 hit candidly takes us from rural Ontario in the 50s and the iconic coffeehouses of Yorkville and Greenwich Village in the 60s, through to Lightfoot’s substance-fueled arena shows of the 70s, and finally to his life today. Featuring interviews with Sarah McLachlan, Alec Baldwin, Rush, and more, If You Could Read My Mind is an intimate examination of the troubadour’s profound relationship to his music and the country he calls home.
