“Keepers of the Light” Outdoor Screening and Discussion with Filmmakers Liz Witham and Ken Wentworth
August 7 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Built more than 200 years ago, the Gay Head Lighthouse is one of America’s most famous beacons. From whaling days to the advent of electrification, Keepers of the Light tells the story of evolving technology, heroism, shipwrecks, and the people who are called upon, in each generation, to keep the light. Celebrate International Lighthouse Day with Island filmmakers Liz Witham and Ken Wentworth as they share their film documenting a race against time—the recent effort to save the historic lighthouse from falling over the edge of the rapidly eroding Aquinnah cliffs.
Liz and Ken will speak at 8pm. The film will begin at 8:20pm. Please bring your own chairs/blanket.
Museum members: $10, Non-members $15
