Historian and storyteller Erin Farley recorded the testimony and stories of the men and women who worked for the Northern Lighthouse Board through a time of transition from manned to automated lighthouses.
Resonant voices and visual imagery give an authentic glimpse of lives lived against a backdrop of unusual circumstance. What was life actually like for the Keepers and their families working in the service of the Northern Lighthouse Board? We are now at an exciting stage of the project where the film is on tour around various venues in Scotland.
Thank you to Erin Farley, and film makers Martine Robertson and Colin Gately for making this happen and for creating such a wonderful, emotional and thought provoking film.
