Sailing along...

Dear Backers,

Here is a long overdue update!

We have been very busy taking the film directly to niche audiences in all kinds of cool places around the world, meeting with awesome people along the way and being introduced to many meaningful projects that resonate very much with our own. From a small Colombian island in the far Western Caribbean called Old Providence where the Raizul people, descended from Jamaican & Cayman Islanders still people speak an English dialect to the Outer Hebrides in Scotland, the passion of building and restoring simple, beautiful handcrafted traditional boats is far reaching indeed.

These screening events are helping raise enough funds to begin distributing our film wider through several exciting outreach programs in development. AND, in April 2017 we plan to begin creating our first Blu Ray & DVD versions for general release!

In the meantime we are preparing the Special Backer Edition DVD for those of you that chose the reward [thanks for your patience, these will ship in April] and if you would like to host your own community screening event, hit the button below.
