Filmmakers Liz Witham and Ken Wentworth of Film Truth Productions announce that American Public Television (APT) will distribute their feature-length documentary, KEEPERS OF THE LIGHT to Public Television stations across America starting May 19th, 2020. Northern California Public Media (NCPM) is the presenting station for this offering. 246 member stations representing 80% of the Public Television market have already signed on to broadcast KEEPERS OF THE LIGHT. Check your local Public Television station for program listings.
Witham and Wentworth are excited about this opportunity to bring the film to a nationwide public television audience through their partnership with APT and NCPM. For the filmmakers, KEEPERS OF THE LIGHT is a story near to their hearts. The documentary takes place in Aquinnah where the filmmakers currently live, and where director Liz Witham was born and raised. The Gay Head Lighthouse is in their backyard and the filmmakers’ deep understanding of the history and culture of Aquinnah shines through in the end result.
“This has been an extremely exciting project, as the history of the Gay Head Lighthouse is fascinating but one of the wonderful things about this film is it’s not just about one lighthouse – it’s about the history of lighthouses in the US,
shipwrecks and heroic rescues, it’s about Vineyard history and the Wampanoag community of Aquinnah, and the important role of historic preservation in saving our shared stories” says director Liz Witham.
