Between Land and Sea

A couple living in a lighthouse on a tiny island experiences a collision of romanticism and reality.

Situated on tiny East Brother Island, Peter & Dina are newly-married and have been running a lighthouse bed and breakfast for nearly two years. Surrounded by lighthouse kitsch and romantic views of the San Francisco Bay, the strain of serving up an idealized tourist experience and living in extremely close quarters is beginning to show.

Between Land and Sea combines on stunning landscapes and observational cinema to create a contrast between the romanticized images of self-reliance and isolation and the realities of running a business in the modern world.
