Zoe Lucas is a self-taught environmentalist and naturalist who has lived 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 recognized for its rare ecosystems with considerable scientific value and importance. Throughout her decades on Sable Island, as its only full-time inhabitant, Zoe Lucas has demonstrated a scope of research that is staggering in detail. Through her dedication to documenting a life's work—one that accurately mirrors Zoe's work ethic—director Jacquelyn Mills weaves together a meticulous portrait of someone with a remarkable relationship with her surrounding ecosystem. Geographies of Solitude ultimately asks us to consider our own connection to the natural world and the lengths we may need to go to save it.
