Ron Hynes: The Irish Tour
45 minutes / Documentary / English / 2000
Produced by Rink Rat Productions
Written and Directed by Rosemary House
Ron Hynes' song "Sonny's Dream" was written in Newfoundland and recorded in more than a dozen countries. But it's the Irish who really fell for the song – it's sung at every wake and wedding in the country. 'Sonny' typifies Hynes' narrative gifts and its international success tells the tale of the power of song. Shot entirely in Ireland, this multiple Gemini award nominated film is a beautifully entertaining exploration of the connections between people, place and music and a rich profile of a talented Canadian artist.
Featuring: Ron Hynes, Mary Black, Donal Lunny and Coolfin.
