Q&A with Jacquelyn Mills

Mixing vivid 16mm footage with hand-processed abstractions, Jacquelyn Mills’s film, a multiple prizewinner at the recent Berlinale, is a portrait of conservationist Zoe Lucas, one of the lone inhabitants of Sable Island, a 26-mile sandbar off the coast of Nova Scotia. An account of Lucas’s remarkable study of the island’s biodiversity, its fabled herds of wild horses, and the many ecological threats it faces, Geographies of Solitude is also a sensuous collaboration between filmmaker, subject, and the sparse, windswept terrain.
