my most famous documentary is Waiting for Fidel. It takes the personal filmmaking style much further in as much as I appear on camera to keep the peace between my two warring protagonists.
I’d been invited to go down to Cuba, this was the early 70s, and film are ground breaking interview with Fidel Castro. Joey Smallwood, small former Premier of Newfoundland and who had met Castro, would be asking the questions. His sidekick who was actually putting up the money and providing the private jet which flew us down there, was multimillionaire Geoff Stirling. Whilst Joey was prepared to be very impressed by what he saw in Cuba, Stirling chose to see it all as a stifling of the human spirit, of freedom, and the rights of children.
