Directed, written, and produced by Stephanie Slewka

A tiny island in Maine is torn apart over the value of art in the local school.
A rift ensues: friends and relatives stop speaking to each other. Then a former Broadway producer who has retired there creates a musical about the island to heal the rift. The documentary follows the making of the show and reveals the inner life of this isolated community.

"On This Island" premiered in a shortend version in August 2001 at the Georgetown Independent Film Festival. It was featured in the NorthWest Current newspaper, on WTOP and WMTW radio stations and WGME Portland.

The musical was written about in The New York Times, the Boston Globe and featured on NPR. Click here to listen to the NPR report. (RealAudio)
