Along the Tracks
Just a clip of a larger project that's still in progress.

Using a recording of my Grandfather describing his story of running away from residential school in 1919/1920 as a source of directions, we examined maps and embarked on a similar route in 2009 to create our own story of travelling by foot across the north shore of Lake Huron. After listening to this recording many times the journey appears vividly in our minds. Images of the blueberries he lived on meld with those of railway tracks he followed from Sault Ste Marie to Espanola, Ontario.
