The film, which features never-before-seen footage that was filmed in northern California, London and Nashville, is being released to celebrate the record’s 50th anniversary this year.

The film’s synopsis reads, “Created between January and September 1971, this docu-film takes viewers on an intimate journey to Young’s Broken Arrow Ranch in Northern California for the ‘Harvest Barn’ sessions, to London for an iconic performance with the London Symphony Orchestra, and to Nashville where the then 20-something Neil Young worked on various tracks of this signature album.

“Performance and rehearsal content is intertwined into creative storytelling, and includes most of the tracks from Harvest, including Heart of Gold, A Man Needs A Maid, Alabama and Old Man.”

Young said in a statement: “This is a big album for me. 50 years ago, I was 24, maybe 23, and this album made a big difference in my life. I played with some great friends and it’s really cool that this album has lasted so long. I had a great time and now, when I listen to it, I think I was really just lucky to be there.

“I hope you enjoy this story, which is Harvest Time, and which talks about everything that happened. And now people all around the world can see it at the movies.”

Young recently announced that Harvest will be reissued for its 50th anniversary, adding a previously unreleased documentary and concert film, three outtakes from the sessions, and more. Out 2 December via Reprise, the 3xLP and 3xCD sets both come with a hardbound photo book, posters, and liner notes by photographer Joel Bernstein.
