Filmmaker Jonathan Demme?s Heart of Gold is an intimate musical portrait of legendary singer/songwriter Neil Young, filmed on the occasion of the world premiere of Young?s Prairie Wind concert at Nashville?s hallowed Ryman Auditorium last summer. Young?s music provides an emotionally rich view into this unique artist?s relationship to family, friends and the passage of time. Demme challenges himself to create a poetic work that is far more than a mere recording of artists at the top of their game while deepening his long involvement with music on film. Young is accompanied on stage by many long time musical companions, including country star Emmylou Harris, Neil?s wife Pegi Young, and band leader/ steel guitarist Ben Keith.
