A Cook Craft Production
Take a journey with Brian Cook, a master canoe builder in Dwight, Ontario. His life hasn’t always been so idyllic. Against the backdrop of the interiors of Algonquin Park, Cook’s poetic narration explains why he gave up his work as a stem cell biologist and returned home to Canada to paddle.
Tumblehome features a hand built, ornate wooden canoe being sailed whilst the canoeist plays ethereal music on a hand built lyre — music that is used directly as the score. The natural imagery is accompanied by poetic quotes and musings from Deep Ecology Writer Annie Dillard. In these times of technological overstimulation many people are yearning to connect with nature, and Tumblehome inspires people to do just that.
