New donation: “Strong Hearts, Steady Hands” (2004) documentary footage.

Felipe Gomes, one of the producers of the documentary Strong Hearts, Steady Hands (2004), directed by Carol Coffey, donated the film’s raw footage to the Clara Thomas Archives & Special Collections, York University Libraries. This footage includes over 50 hours of interviews with Portuguese immigrants and descendants across Canada and in Portugal. The CTASC are currently digitizing this footage. We are hoping to make it available on our website once it is ready.

  1. My Father, Joao Martins, is interviewed in the documentary’Strong Heart, Steady Hands’ as he was one of the original Portuguese Pioneers who came to Canada in 1953. I was hoping you could tell me where I could receive a digital copy of the documentary to show his Grandchildren.
    Any help you could provide in locating a copy in English would be appreciated.

    Thank you,
    Luisa Martins
