“The Outermost Place” is a 12-minute film created in 1980. It masterfully intertwines the wisdom of Henry David Thoreau with conversations and musings of John Worthington, Sr. His love of Truro and of trap fishing are set against the stunning backdrop of the Outer Cape.
The film was made by Michael W. Barnard, who has had a four decade career in the movie business as a producer, director, director of photography, and editor. He spent much of his childhood in Truro and returns as often as he can.
