PRODUCTION UNDERWAY ON 'MINISTER OF LONELINESS'

Production is underway on the new documentary, MINISTER OF LONELINESS (working title). This multi-length documentary and web channel will be the first deep dive into the growing epidemic of loneliness and isolation. It is cutting million's of people's lives short around the world and is becoming a serious health concern. The filmmakers initially began the film with the idea of looking at the effects of loneliness on people aging with HIV. However they quickly realized that this illness spares no one. Check out director, Stu Maddux's thoughts on it and the new film here . Read more and contribute to Minister Of Loneliness here.

Built over 200 years ago in a small Wampanoag community at the tip of an island in the Atlantic, the Gay Head Lighthouse is one of America's most famous beacons. From whaling days to electrification,  Keepers of the Light  tells the story of evolving technology, heroism and shipwrecks, and the people who are called upon in each generation to keep the light, woven with the story of the recent race against time to save the historic beacon from falling over the edge of the rapidly eroding cliffs.

A panel of community insiders will also be filmed in the days before Folsom Street Fair, discussing and debating the various important milestones in this history, to provide context and background to the present-day expression of these sexualities.
