This is the fourth of the four films that make up the series, Mr. Coperthwaite: A Life in the Maine Woods. This evocative film reveals the stillness and quietness of the forest in winter.
Life is lived close to the stove. It’s a time for small tasks and chores – making a wedge, sewing a pocket, darning a pair of socks. But the film also offers glimpses of a world beyond. The arrival of a family, animated by the energy and curiosity of children, provokes the viewer to reflect on what it means to live a “handmade life” and raises profound questions about aging and mortality, generations, solitude, and community.
