One late afternoon last month, while the spun-gold of autumn's fading light filtered through the madrona trees, a Los Angeles-based film crew gathered at the home of Phil Volker on Wax Orchard Road. The location, worthy of starring in a film, set the scene for a joyous reunion of the director, crew, cast and friends of the award-winning documentary, "Phil's Camino," on the eve of the film's presentation at the Port Townsend Film Festival.
