Danny, a documentary by the National Film Board about politician Danny Williams, starts its Arts and Culture tour across the province today. Whatever your politics, it’s worth a watch. Besides focusing on Danny, the film uses his life to talk about the history of Newfoundland and Labrador and its complicated relationship with Canada since joining the country in 1949.
I was the researcher and story consultant on the project. I got to work with a great team: Justin Simms and Bill MacGillivray (Directors), Annette Clarke (Producer), Jon Montes (Associate Producer) and Chris Darlington (Graphics and Animation).
