When: Mon., June 26, 7:30 p.m. 2017
Thomas is a lighthouse keeper on the coast of Maine. It's a tough life, one that requires rigorous discipline and near-constant work to maintain the lighthouse in harsh conditions. Fortunately he can rely on his wife Abbie — and since Thomas has been bedridden with a serious illness, Abbie has taken on all of his daily duties. When Abbie finds a man washed up on the rocks, she tends to him as well. But things are bound to change once the government inspectors show up; no woman could be expected to manage a lighthouse in 1876, despite all evidence to the contrary. Erica Fae's film To Keep the Light won Fae the emerging director's award at the 2016 St. Louis International Film Festival. To Keep the Light receives another screening at 7:30 p.m. tonight at .Zack (3224 Locust Street; www.cinemastlouis.org) as part of the Films @ SLIFF.Zack series. Admission is free.
Price: free admission
