GEOGRAPHIES OF SOLITUDE is an immersion into the rich landscapes and biosphere of Nova Scotia’s Sable Island and the life of Zoe Lucas, a naturalist and environmentalist who has lived over 40 years on this once-treacherous shipwreck-strewn remote strip of sand that is home to far more horses than people. This award-winning documentary from Canadian director Jacquelyn Mills shows both how easily the refuse from the mainland befouls this pristine place and the price of being dedicated to spending a lifetime keeping watch and chronicling it all. "A beguiling and poetic film." –Wendy Ide, Screen Daily
