Documentary Filmmaker and Camera Assistant, Thom Willey, will talk about his career in film and television, and his current documentary "Rhythms of the Heart". The documentary film depicts Passamaquoddy canoe and basket craftsman David Moses Bridges and his journey to preserve family, life, and tradition while facing a life threatening illness. Original music for the film was composed and performed by Southwest Harbor resident Chris Gray.

A lifetime resident of Southwest Harbor, Willey’s work has included the motion picture and television industries since 1990. Willey's 1998 documentary of Northeast Harbor resident and artist Richard Estes was recently re-released and updated on DVD in 2014. Such films as "Dan In Real Life", "The Rockford Files" and multiple Stephen King film adaptations contribute to his resume.
