TO KEEP THE LIGHT
Aug 15 - 17, 6:00 & 8:00
Inspired by true stories, a lighthouse keeper's wife struggles with her work - and her sanity - as she cares for her sick husband in 19th century Maine. When a mysterious stranger washes up on shore, secrets hidden in deep waters come to light, and she is forced to confront both her past and her future. Shot in Jonesport, Lubec, Machiasport, and Owl's Head, this mesmerizing, stunningly gorgeous debut feature has earned multiple awards -- for best narrative, for best cinematography, for best director, for best new feature -- paints a landscape of stark, aching beauty, and reveals the inner life of a woman who is, literally and figuratively, at the edge of society. Director Erica Fae also stars and wrote the screenplay.
