Autre option

Musician Catherine MacLellan—the daughter of Canadian singer/songwriting legend Gene MacLellan—grew up surrounded by her father’s music. He died by suicide when she was 14. Two decades after his loss, Catherine is finally ready to confront the hurtful mystery of her absent parent and embrace his musical legacy.

The Song and the Sorrow follows Catherine as she journeys to understand her father and face her own struggles with mental illness. Through archival footage and intimate interviews with friends, family members, and musicians who knew and played with Gene—including Anne Murray, Lennie Gallant, and the late Ron Hynes—the film reveals a troubled and loving man who was never at ease with fame or money.

Catherine is determined to lift the oppressive burden of silence that accompanies the stigma of mental illness and hopes that others can take strength and solace from her story.

Ce film traite d'un sujet controversé. Pour public averti.

    Catherine, what a gem you and all others involved have created! I especially appreciate the emotional and mental health content which demonstrate your courage and honesty, and strength to reach out to inform and illuminate others. Well done! My words are inadequate in relaying to you the incredibly powerful impact your film made on me. My brother died recently at the age of 76, after 60 torturous years in the mental health system. Bless you for Sharing your heart and soul with us while creating this beautiful significant an memorable film.

    I didn't even know about Gene Maclellan until now. This film made everything clear.
