Charlie & Poppy

Faced with the loss of his beloved grandfather, a young man sits at a train station platform, where he replays 20 years of childhood memories, despera

(2015) Directed by Jennifer Potts

Four-year old Charlie and his grandfather, Poppy, arrive at a train station platform—one bouncing with great energy, the other providing a steady hand. Hearing the train approaching, they reach in their pockets for their whistles. Charlie laughs at Poppy’s puffed-cheek whistle blowing as the train pulls into the station for passengers to disembark and step aboard.

Over the span of 20 years, as Charlie grows and Poppy ages, they change this cherished ritual to embrace both the excitement and limitations each stage of life brings. Charlie struggles to keep the magic alive by providing the entertainment when his beloved, aging Poppy no longer has the strength.

America’s Forgotten Heroine: Ida Lewis, Keeper of the Light

20 Aug , 2015 | Posted by:

Historical documentary that focuses on the intriguing life story of this country’s most famous maritime heroine.

(2014) Directed by Marian Gagnon

Intimate portrayal of Ida’s life from age 15 to 69 (from 1857 to 1911) and the passion and moral fiber she intrinsically brought to her work as a lighthouse keeper and unlikely heroine. It also explores the myriad decisions which led to a life of both fame and isolation, Ida’s unexpected celebrity in Newport as well as across the U.S., and the impact she inadvertently had on the early women’s rights movement.

As John Williams Haley, author of The Rhode Island Historian wrote in 1939: "...of all the Rhode Island women who have achieved fame in one way or another...and there have been many...none attained the world renown of a modest little woman who was born and lived most of her life in Newport. In fact, it would hardly be exaggeration to say that she was more famous, particularly during the latter half of her life, than any American woman of the past or present."

While this statement may very well stand today, Ida’s story has largely been forgotten. Gagnon’s goal with this film is to renew the “national memory” of Ida Lewis as an American heroine not only in her hometown of Newport and throughout R.I., but across the United States.
