As a medical student in 2007, I spent a month in the community of Twillingate, on Newfoundland’s northeast coast. This is one version of my time there. Shot in 16 mm B&W.
In 1928, Amelia Earhart wanted to become the first woman to fly across the Atlantic. (As a passenger first; her efforts to become the first female pilot would come late.) On the way, she and the crew of Friendship were grounded for a week in Trepassey, Newfoundland due to bad weather. This is the story of that week, as recounted by Laura Devereaux, who met her as a young girl.
