There's a new documentary film about legendary Canadian singer-songwriter Gordon Lightfoot titled 'Gordon Lightfoot: If You Could Read My Mind'. Geddy and Alex make an appearance according to a post here.

It appears that the film began production back in 2017 according to here.

The film will be premiered at the Hot Docs Festival in Toronto, which runs from April 25 to May 5 according to here and here.

I couldn't locate a trailer for the film though.

The photo took place at the Toronto Music Awards in December 1989 when Gordon Lightfoot was presented with a Lifetime Achievement Award according to photographer Algis Kemezys.

I wonder if Geddy remembers this -

In a 1979 issue of Canadian Musician Magazine (front cover had a close up of Geddy with one of his Siamese cats) he was talking about how their music was not the same old typical Canadian music.  This is what I remember him saying and it's pretty close:

"We're not a bunch of folkie types like Gordon Lightfoot or a bunch of lumberjacks like BTO"

I tried to find the article on line, but had no luck.  I guess it was a young Geddy just being honest but not realizing he may have been slightly rude.  I guess Gordon didn't mind... neither did Randy, because they are all friends these days. At least that's what I have heard.

Oh, back in the day, eh?
