Featured Works in The Home Road Film


Notes from Tonya: THE HOME ROAD documentary features music by Maine filmmaker and composer, Sumner McKane. Sumner's music and mentoring were invaluable in the making of the film, and his filmmaking is an inspiration. His four historical documentary films and soundtracks are favorites of mine and are highly recommended. See 



The film also features illustrations by my brother, Peter Shevenell. I grew up watching him draw, and in many of the best ways, I feel like I'm still growing up watching him draw. As a life-long fan and adoring proud big sister, I am delighted that The Home Road starts and finishes at "home," with my brother's imagination and talent.
