Former lighthouse keepers reminisce about solitude, and the power of the sea

As the world becomes increasingly automated, the singular occupation of lighthouse keeper has quietly disappeared from the British coastline. Part elegy for a departed era, part meditation on the experience of solitude in nature, Ronan Glynn’s film records the stories of those who once manned the beacons that illuminate the wild places where the land meets the sea.

Director: Ronan Glynn

Producer: Liberty Smith
