The Light Keeper: Bill Kitchen & the Landscapes of Solitude, Maine, Winter 2012

Part One: The Light & the Tide

This is the first draft of the movie by Mr. Blue about Bill Kitchen's sojourn into solitude and discovery as he embarks on a year-long stay as the lighthouse keeper on a small island off the coast of Maine. A beautiful setting for a lighthouse is still a perilous proposition in wintertime, but Bill Kitchen has proven countless times that he is up to daunting challenges.
