WISCASSET FILMMAKER SUMNER MCKANE’S NEWEST DOCU-EXHIBIT

The Maine Frontier: Through The Lens of Isaac Walton Simpson, combines the scarcely seen turn-of-the-century photography of Isaac Simpson with both archived and current films, oral histories, and a compelling musical soundtrack performed live. The Maine Frontier is an illustration of family, work, community and culture in northern Maine at the turn-of-the-century, exemplified via Isaac Simpson’s extensive photographic collection of logging camps, farms, “Shack Hill and “Little Italy” in Millinocket, railroad tie camps, shoe-last camps, and of the pioneering families who sustained a life on the Maine Frontier. Employing Isaac Simpson’s exemplifying photographs, The Maine Frontier investigates the unique geographical circumstances of a pioneering people in a region virtually disconnected from the rest of the state and country.
