In this poetic tribute to Sable Island, a remote piece of land off the coast of the Northeast Canada, naturalist and environmentalist Zoe Lucas, who has lived on the island for over 40 years, becomes part of her habitat. Each day she collects, cleans and documents the marine litter that persistently washes up on the land. Director Jacquelyn Mills delivers intimate, tactile 16mm images that feel like we are witnessing one of Zoe’s solitary excursions.

Despite its apparent gentleness, Geographies of Solitude delivers an urgent missive about the global environmental disaster whose reach has touched even the most remote places.” (BFI)
