Zoe Lucas is a self-taught environmentalist and naturalist who has lived and worked for over 40 years on a remote strip of sand. Sable Island is 300 kilometres off the coast of Nova Scotia and can only be reached by private charter plane. This isolated and exposed place has long been recognised for its rare ecosystems with considerable scientific value and importance. Filmmaker Jacquelyn Mills shows us Sable Island through Lucas’s eyes. Shooting exclusively on vivid 16mm, Mills captures the sensory experience of this unique idyll – its textures, tones and rhythms – with experimental and eco-friendly techniques. The soundtrack is frequently derived from natural beats provided by beetles, snails and air currents; images, wrought from raw materials, narrow the space between science and art. Geographies of Solitude is an unforgettable collaboration between landscape, subject and filmmaker.
