Ron Hynes – The Man of a Thousand Songs
The Man of a Thousand Songs is an emotional, intimate and tender documentary about the life of fabled Canadian songwriter Ron Hynes. Addressing the question, “What’s this film about, Ron?”, legendary Canadian singer/ songwriter Ron Hynes takes possession of the camera.
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. Exploring the bitter irony of being an immensely talented but little known ‘legend’, this documentary presents a complex, emotionally satisfying journey through the mind and music of Ron Hynes.
