Erica Fae at Nashville Film Festival with TO KEEP THE LIGHT

Congrats to Erica Fae at Nashville Film Festival for her film “TO KEEP THE LIGHT.”

“Women dominate this year’s New Directors category, but there’s something for everyone as the newest filmmakers give us their best. To Keep the Light (8 p.m. April 19; 1:15 p.m. April 20), Erica Fae’s slow-burning period drama, follows salt-of-the-earth Abbie, who is tasked with tending to a lighthouse on a remote Maine island during her husband’s illness. Fae, who also stars in the film, has garnered praise for her work in theater, and it shows: She reveals her character through exacting body language that makes her situation visceral. Inspired by true stories of women lighthouse keepers in the 1800s, To Keep the Light is beautifully shot, building tension against the harsh landscape, and Fae proves to be a true new talent.”
