Patrick Smith's Florida, A Sense of Place

Spend an hour with one of Florida’s favorite writers, Patrick D. Smith, as he takes you on a nostalgic journey to a Florida that exists today only in books, such as in his beloved novel, A Land Remembered.You’ll get to know both the author and the state of Florida better as this soft spoken gentleman introduces you to the Florida of his youth. You’ll be touched by the true stories of his adventures along the way to writing his books, many of which are now modern-day classics.

Old photographs tell more than words cn say as he tells the why and how he wrote his books that have become classics. The scenery throughout the film is outstanding as is the music.

The unusual aspect of this production is that it all “fits” artistically, gently, yet with quiet drama and a sense of realness not easy to portray … the sounds of the birds, their wing-songs, waves and water. There is nothing artificial, no gimmicks “of the trade”
