Filmmaker Millefiore Clarkes with her Silverwave AwardThe Song and the Sorrow is a new documentary produced by the National Film Board of Canada and directed by PEI filmmaker Millefiore Clarkes. It tells the story of JUNO-Award-winning musician Catherine MacLellan as she seeks a deeper understanding of her father, the late Gene MacLellan, and his struggle with mental health. 

The film premiered at FIN Atlantic International Film Festival in September where it won Best Short Atlantic Doc and then went on to win Best Atlantic Filmmaker at Lunenburg Doc Fest. It recently won Best Documentary at the Silverwave Film Festival in Fredericton. It opened The Rendezvous with Madness Festival in Toronto, screening at the HotDocs Ted Rogers Cinema on Bloor St. on World Mental Health Day. It has gone on to screen at festivals across Canada and there are plans in the works to align the film with music conferences and festivals in the coming months.

Catherine and Millefiore have been accompanying the film to its various screenings, and Catherine has given audience members a richer experience by performing her father’s music and engaging in extensive Q&As after the film.
