Keepers of the Light Online Launch with Q&A
May 7, 2020 @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pmFree
We are pleased to share with you an upcoming online event from makers of the film, KEEPERS OF THE LIGHT…
From whaling days to electrification, KEEPERS OF THE LIGHT tells the story of Gay Head Light’s evolving technology, heroism and shipwrecks, and the people who are called upon in each generation to keep the light, woven with the story of the recent race against time to save the historic beacon from falling over the edge of the rapidly eroding cliffs.
The film will be distributed by American Public Television to Public Television stations nationwide starting in mid May. The documentary is also now for the first time available to screen online!
In conjunction with this launch, there will be a special Zoom Online Launch Celebration and Film Discussion May 7th, at 8pm, EST. The filmmakers will be joined by special guests (listed below) to discuss the film and answer your questions.
Filmmakers Liz Witham and Ken Wentworth will be joined by special guests:
Jeremy D’Entremont, ALF and USLHS Lighthouse Historian
Kristina Hook, Wampanoag Tribal Elder
Richard Skidmore, Gay Head Lighthouse Keeper
Martha Vanderhoop, granddaughter of Keeper Charles Vanderhoop
Isaac Taylor, Musical Guest will perform his song “Red Queen.”
