Shown last fall at Canada’s “TIFF” this music documentary is an intimate portrait of one of Canada’s finest singer songwriters, directed by William D. MacGillivray. The Man of a Thousand Songs tells the tale of a young man from St. John’s, Newfoundland who climbed our national stage at the age of 16. The film recounts Hynes’ life journey, including the costs of obsession and ego, loneliness and substance abuse, along with the burden of overwhelming talent which continues to be celebrated by countless artists recording his work. Hynes’ brittle sense of humour and the film’s capture of many of his performances’ (including “Sonny’s Dream”) is a fascinating watch and offers a window into the struggles of an artist’s life against the backdrop of Canada’s music industry.

Director Bio 
William D. MacGillivray was born in St. John’s, Newfoundland. A screenwriter, editor, director and producer, he is a founding member of the Atlantic Filmmakers Co-operative and a preeminent figure in the history and development of independent filmmaking in Atlantic Canada.

When Rick Fines and Suzie Vinnick met they each had significant success of their own. A dozen years later the pair has 15 recordings and multiple awards and nominations between them, a long awaited collaborative album, and enough chemistry and energy to have made them one of Canada's favourite duos.
