FIRST FEATURE AWARD

To Keep the Light

ERICA FAE
USA, 2016
88 minutes, Color
Official website

Movies and lighthouses share qualities of projected light and incipient drama alternating with meditative stillness. Those factors produce a kind of synchronic beauty in To Keep the Light, a film written by, directed by, and starring Erica Fae. Set in 1876, it is the story of a Maine lighthouse keeper's wife, Abbie, who, unbeknownst to the authorities, is the real lighthouse keeper while her husband fades into alcoholism and illness. When a Swedish sailor (Antti Reini) washes up in a storm, she rescues him, and when he stays, she must confront the reality of her situation. Fae based Abbie on history's mostly hidden women lighthouse keepers. An actress who has garnered praise for her bodywork in theater, she portrays Abbie through precise dialogue and physical language, the camera taking her cues. The prestigious Fipresci International Critics' Prize called the film "from start to finish…a work by a visionary artist."—Judy Bloch
