Schooners of the Cayman Islands
After a screening of our film in Suffolk, U.K. last week we received the below:
"I saw the movie last night thought it was a great accomplishment and much needed to stimulate more respect for the attributes of working with your hands to perfect a useful piece of beauty. This is a problem in the Caribbean generally amongst those whose generations have done just that and have 'raised' their standards of living to the point that working with your hands is a sign of an impoverished class. Cayman has similar tendencies because of tourism and the financial culture..." Herman E. Ross
The image above is the Lydia A. Wilson from a collection sent to Mr. Ross for his upcoming book & lecture series on Cayman Islands Maritime Heritage. He is pictured below [2nd from right background] aboard the ill fated Goldfield, the most beautiful in Cayman's fleet of over 200 schooners.
We look forward to meeting many more interesting people along our journey of special screenings of Vanishing Sail [click links below to book tickets]:
With Thanks & Respect,
Alexis & Justin
