A new documentary produced by a Utica man focuses on a community's effort to preserve the South Channel Range Lights of Lake St. Clair.
Ron Robinson Studios this week announced the release of its debut film, "It Takes a Village...The Story of the South Channel Range Lights."
Built in 1859, "The Twin Sisters" played a key role in the Civil War as well as helping give birth to the Industrial Age. Left to the elements, a boating couple from Harsens Island, Chuck Brockman and his wife, Scotty, formed an organization in 1989, Save Our South Channel Lights, and began to restore them.
Robinson's film takes you from before the range lights were constructed, through their heyday, to their decay, to their present state. Be there as they light the rear light for the first time in 100 years.
The documentary contains interviews with several area luminaries, including Brockman, U.S. Rep. Candice Miller and Macomb County Executive Mark Hackel.
