AFF Feature: Wood Sails Dreams

| March 5, 2014 | 1 Comment

Annapolis Film FestThe act of building and sailing boats made out of trees and powered by the wind is a small moment of grace in the face of a digitally enhanced world and throwaway culture. But forty years ago the rise of fiberglass boats nearly pushed wooden sailboats, and the trade of building them, to the brink of extinction. Wood Sails Dreams explores the resurgence of wooden boats, the restoration of American maritime history, and the ancient craft of traditional boat building. (USA, 2013, 57 min., Documentary Feature)
