For more information-check out our websitewww.woodsholefilmfestival.org call (508) 495-3456 or emailinfo@woodsholefilmfestival.org To Keep The Light Narrative Feature by Erica Fae, 2015, USA, 88 min. Inspired by true stories of women lighthouse keepers, Abbie Moore is a composite character giving voice to their largely unknown experience. Working in isolation and under extreme conditions, these women — who inherited their jobs from infirm or deceased husbands or fathers — were trailblazers, embodying feminism long before the word existed and far afield from the urban, intellectual circles that spawned the women’s rights movement. Abbie’s strength is stoic and sensual, yet not packaged in sexuality. Nuanced, human and true to her time, she’s a female lead rarely depicted on screen. Shot on an island off the coast of northern Maine, ‘To Keep the Light’ reveals a landscape of stark, aching beauty, and brings us to the inner life of a woman who is, literally and figuratively, at the edge of society.”

Heather Hendershot, “Open to Debate: How William F. Buckley Put Liberal America on the Firing Line”

October 14, 2016 by Julia Pearl

When Firing Linepremiered on American television in 1966, just two years after Barry Goldwater’s devastating defeat, liberalism was ascendant. Though the left seemed to have decisively won the hearts and minds of the electorate, the show’s creator and host, William F. Buckley—relishing his role as a public contrarian—made the case for conservative ideas, believing that his side would ultimately win because its arguments were better. As the founder of the right’s flagship journal, National Review, Buckley spoke to likeminded readers. With Firing Line, he reached beyond conservative enclaves, engaging millions of Americans across the political spectrum.

Each week on Firing Line, Buckley and his guests—the cream of America’s intellectual class, such as Tom Wolfe, Noam Chomsky, Norman Mailer, Henry Kissinger, and Milton Friedman—debated the urgent issues of the day, bringing politics, culture, and economics into American living rooms as never before. Buckley himself was an exemplary host; he never appealed to emotion and prejudice; he engaged his guests with a unique and entertaining combination of principle, wit, fact, a truly fearsome vocabulary, and genuine affection for his adversaries.

Drawing on archival material, interviews, and transcripts,Open to Debate provides a richly detailed portrait of this widely respected ideological warrior, showing him in action as never before. Much more than just the story of a television show, Hendershot’s book provides a history of American public intellectual life from the 1960s through the 1980s—one of the most contentious eras in our history—and shows how Buckley led the way in drawing America to conservatism during those years.
