THREE NIGHTS ON FOGO ISLAND
12 Minutes, 2015
On vacation in Newfoundland, Toddy was introduced to the fisherman/poet Roy Dwyer. Having the time on his hands and an iPhone handy, Toddy recorded the reading of a number of poems in Roy's tool shed. He made one poem, "Born To Go Fishing," into a short film.
"Fogo Island is not so much a place as a state of mind. With a long maritime history, the largest offshore island of Newfoundland and Labrador is a gentle world of bright-colored clapboard houses, sea-cliff footpaths, lush forest, and warm hospitality set against a striking coastline. Recently an inspired arts scene has brought new life to Fogo's struggling fishing communities." - National Geographic
