Toormina Video is by Pat Grant, who did Blue—which I recommended early in the project. Toormina Video is his reflection on his childhood and how his father would set him aside to drink—and then, about Pat's own responsibilities as a grown up. In a way, he does the same thing with Blue, using memory to critique the present.

It's an affecting work and highly recommended.
