"I always felt like there wasn't enough time for the things that really counted." - Suzanne Crocker

For nine months, filmmaker Suzanne Crocker, her husband Gerard Parsons, and their three children, made themselves at home in the isolated wilderness of Yukon. They arrived there in August of 2010, and settled in for the long winter together... along with their two cats, and their dog Max.
 



What they didn't have was road access; running water; electricity.... or even, a clock. Which could be why the documentary Suzanne Crocker made during that time is called, All the Time in the WorldThe film is being featured this week at Toronto's Hot Docs Festival.

Suzanne Crocker, her husband Gerard Parsons and their daughter Kate Crocker joined us in studio.
