Director: Anita Doron, 2009 
Songwriter Tony Dekker was new in town and stuck commuting to a day job several subway stops from his home on the Bloor line - a routine that seemed to keep him underground day in and day out. So the singer/guitarist, who records haunting folk music under the name Great Lake Swimmers, penned "I Will Never the See the Sun," an ode to his daily ride along "Spadina, St. George, Bay and Yonge." Soon after his music career took off, and Tony began using more rural environments all across Ontario for writing inspiration and recording spaces. Now, through the wonder of graphic novel-style animation, we follow him back beneath the streets at Spadina subway station to experience the urban sounds of the TTC that were his first connection to our city's sonics.
