You’ve gotta listen to this episode of Off Off Pod.
I’ve decided Victoria is amazing and fearless. And I don’t know if she’d define herself as an “Adventurer” but after talking to her I felt like that word needed to be in the title of her interview!
We got to know each other when she was in a production of my play, Home of the Great Pecan at The Drilling Company, and over the years I’ve seen two of her films, House of Bones (about her lovable, eccentric family and childhood home on Martha’s Vineyard — not to be confused with a horror film of the same name!) and The Hunt for Good Americans where she and a friend traveled across this great country finding and filming all sorts of cool characters.
I had heard a few stories about her most current project where she daringly finagled her way into Haiti 7 days after the earthquake of 2010. I knew there would be some amazing tales about that journey, and, boy, I was not disappointed. You must listen!
By the way, the Haiti documentary, Monsieur le Président, is playing TOMORROW as part of The Martha’s Vineyard Film Festival at 10 am at the Chilmark School. Check out this great article from the Martha’s Vineyard Times.
