"If this thing gone from here, everything gone, you know". Alwyn Enoe is one of the last wooden boatbuilders in the Grenadines, he decides to create one final sailing vessel with his sons before the skills introduced by Scottish settlers are lost forever.
Wooden boatbuilding - Caribbean culture - a beautiful film - now on DVD!!
Worried that it might be his last, a one man band boatbuilding operation brings his whole family into building this beautiful sailing boat. This gorgeous film is made by a few who really know and understand the people and the place - and of course the boats and their importance to life to this Caribbean island community. The soundtrack is of the sounds and voices of this quiet village and the exceptionally stirring music that rises from this part of the world. Completely amazing, and one to treasure on DVD.Vanishing Sail has won numerous awards internationally, and is part of a campaign to get people all over the world to value their local craft cultures and to recognise the importance of them in their lives. A film not to be missed!
