Geographies of Solitude

An immersion into the rich ecosystem of Sable Island, a remote sliver of land in the Northwest Atlantic, the film follows Zoe Lucas, a naturalist and environmentalist who has lived there for over 40 years collecting, cleaning and documenting marine litter that persistently washes up on the island’s shores. Shot on 16mm and created using eco-friendly filmmaking techniques, Geographies of Solitude is a playful and reverent collaboration with the natural world filled with arresting images and made with an activist spirit.

"It is to the great credit of Geographies of Solitude that it never feels expository: It turns an ecology lesson, and an account of a noble, steadfast, single-minded pursuit, into art."
Ben Kenigsberg, The New York Times
