The Song and The Sorrow, NFB film 7:00 pm (42 min)
Catherine MacLellan (duo performance), 8:00pm

Musician Catherine MacLellan, the daughter of Canadian singer/songwriting legend Gene MacLellan, grew up surrounded by her father’s music. He committed 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.

A portion of the proceeds will be donated to Mental Health Foundation of Nova Scotia.
