A love letter to a cherished family home, STARBOARD LIGHT is an inspiring and poignant documentary that ask: does a family make a house or does a house make a family? The film revolves around a middle-class family facing the disappearance of a century of memories when they decide to sell their 210-year-old Cape Cod summer home. Whether it’s a small cabin deep in the woods, a primary residence that’s been handed down generation after generation, or a waterfront summer getaway, many Americans have faced the decision to either keep or let go of their beloved family home. Through the filmmaker’s own family experience, STARBOARD LIGHT shows viewers how to celebrate and preserve the memories ingrained in shared family homes for future generations to enjoy. Present day footage combined with old 16 mm family films and photographs help illustrate this powerful multi-generational family story.
