A Vision at the Margins: The Man of a Thousand Songs

Sun, May 14 / 7 pm
Directed by William D. MacGillivray
2010, Canada, 93 min

Introduced by Bill MacGillivray.

MacGillivray’s  superb portrait of veteran Newfoundland singer-songwriter Ron Hynes. The film takes Hynes to the Ferryland home he inherited from his father who abandoned his wife and children when Ron was just a youngster, an episode that recalls a lyrical sequence from Life Classes. Hynes has his own sharply funny take on the thin line between truth and myth in his life, but revelations of another kind dig even deeper.

Reviews

An emotional, intimate and tender documentary about the life of fabled Canadian songwriter Ron Hynes. Brandishing words and music like weapons, Ron examines his turbulent life, failed relationships, battles with his Alter Ego (whom he ominously calls ‘The Man’), his near death from drug overdose and finally his stirring, triumphant recovery through song.
