Director Profile

David Mortin and Patricia Fogliato

The Stowaway marks David Mortin and Patricia Fogliato's second contribution to A Scattering of Seeds, following Sons and Daughters: The Italians of Schreiber, which they directed for the first season of the series.

As a husband-and-wife filmmaking team, David and Patricia have collaborated on several award-winning documentaries. Time on Earth (1997) follows three seniors as they travel the highways of North America in their motor-homes. Enigmatico (1995) is an hour-long arts documentary which interweaves the poetry, music, painting, sculpture and photography of several Italian Canadian artists.

Prior to forming Enigmatico Films with Patricia, David spent over five years on staff at Rhombus Media, the internationally-renowned production company specializing in films on the performing arts. Recent credits with Rhombus include co-writer of the Emmy Award-winning performance feature, September Songs: The Music of Kurt Weill (1995), and second unit director/associate producer of the Yo-Yo Ma music special, Hong Kong Symphony: Heaven, Earth, Mankind (1997).
