Based on the international best-selling novel by Miriam Toews, All My Puny Sorrows is the poignant story of two Mennonite sisters who have left their strict religious upbringing behind. While one sibling becomes a world-famous concert pianist obsessed with ending her life, the other, a writer, wrestles with her life choices—all the while making profound discoveries about herself. Director Michael McGowan has had several films screen at Cinéfest over the years, including Saint Ralph in 2004, One Week as the Saturday Night Gala in 2008, Score: A Hockey Musical as the Opening Night Gala in 2010, and Still Mine as the Saturday Night Gala in 2012. All My Puny Sorrows was filmed in North Bay.


All My Puny Sorrows relate la touchante histoire de deux sœurs mennonites ayant renoncé à leurs valeurs religieuses trop strictes. L’une est une pianiste de concert de renommée internationale obsédée par l’idée de mettre fin à ses jours, l’autre est une écrivaine qui, en remettant en question certaines de ses décisions, fait de profondes découvertes sur elle-même. Ce long métrage est inspiré du roman à succès de l’auteure manitobaine Miriam Toews. Cinéfest Sudbury a présenté plusieurs films du réalisateur et scénariste Michael McGowan au fil des ans, dont Saint Ralph (2004), One Week (2008), Score: A Hockey Musical (2010) et Still Mine (2012).
