A new film by Canadian producer Amy Goldberg is being screened: “Willard, The Hermit of Gully Lake.” The documentary film is described succinctly on the film website:
In the 1940’s American-born Willard (Kitchener) MacDonald jumped his troop train heading to WWII. Fearing authorities he lived as a hermit deep in the northern wilderness of Nova Scotia, Canada for more than 60 years. This is the true story of “The Hermit of Gully Lake,” a man who lived a life that the rest of us could never endure. He was a soul in exile and yet you will discover that he touched the lives of so many, in ways that no one can really explain.
The film website includes a trailer.
