Sing Me the Songs That Say I Love You: A Concert for Kate McGarrigle, is a documentary directed by Lian Lunson that captures the May 2011 tribute concert honoring the late, great singer songwriter Kate McGarrigle in New York City. This documentary is part concert, and partly an intimate look at a family coming to terms with the loss of a loved one. Candid interviews with Kate’s family and friends are paired with rousing performances of her music. Sing Me the Songs That Say I Love You had its world premiere Sundance London Film Festival in April 2012.
