Laurel Canyon is a feature-length, two-part documentary that pulls back the curtain on a
mythical world and provides an up-close look at the lives of the musicians who inhabited it.

Joni Mitchell, Jackson Browne, Linda Ronstadt, The Eagles, The Mamas and The Papas, Carole
King, Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young, James Taylor, The Doors, Frank Zappa and more.

Group; Alex Gibney, Stacey Offman and Richard Perello, Jigsaw Productions; and Jeff
Pollack. The film is produced by Ryan Suffern, The Kennedy/Marshall Company, and Erin
