Synopsis

Low-budget documentary written, directed and narrated by musician Thomas Dolby, who also provides the score for the film. Dolby, who scored chart success in the US and Canada with his 1982 single 'She Blinded Me With Silence', bases the story around Orfordness Lighthouse on the coast of Suffolk, which is due to be demolished as the sea threatens the structure and advances in ship technology render it redundant. Recalling the lighthouse as an icon of his childhood, Dolby uses it to explore the nature of memory and experience.
