Please Stop


This is a video I made for Common Grackle using old super 8 film footage from my mother's youth.  A lot of it was filmed at Madeira Park, a hangout for Portuguese immigrants living in the Toronto area.  My grandfather had a hand at creating the park, so naturally, the family spent a lot of time swimming, eating and getting drunk there.  The last part of the video shows footage of their return to Portugal on a family holiday after living in Canada for over 15 years.
