Neil Young Journeys is a 2011 American concert documentary film produced and directed by Jonathan Demme, featuring Neil Young and produced for Sony Pictures Classics. It is, along with Neil Young: Heart of Gold (2006) and Neil Young Trunk Show (2009), part of a Neil Young trilogy directed by Demme.


The film has Young visiting his childhood home of Omemee, Ontario, with his brother where he arrives at his old haunts and tells stories of the people from his past. In addition, he passes by Scott Young Public School, which was named in honor of his father, Scott Young.

However, there are five classic songs with "Ohio" being the most prominent with archival footage of the Kent State Shootings in 1970 with photographs of the four students who were killed in the incident being displayed.
