To Keep the Light

(2016) by Erica Fae, 88 minutes, Narrative, Unrated, USA

Inspired by true stories, To Keep the Light is a quietly mesmerizing look at the life of a lighthouse keeper's wife who struggles with her daily 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. To Keep the Light has won awards for Best Director, Best Narrative Feature, and Cinematography from festivals around the world.

There will be a Q&A following the screening with the film's producer, Jane Applegate.
