When singer-songwriter Kate McGarrigle died of cancer in 2010, her children decided the only way they could pay tribute to her was through music. Two of them -- Rufus and Martha Wainwright, well-know singer-songwriters in their own right -- made three gala performances to celebrate the legacy of a classic songwriter and the lessons of a mother. Lian Lunson's documentary, produced by Wim Winders, captures scenes from the three performances, with guests like Norah Jones. From the director of Leonard Cohen: I'm Your Man. Berlin 2013.
