Vanishing Sail

“An insightful and poignant documentary that is part social history and part Herzogian portrait of resilience and determination in a far-flung locale.”— INDIEWIRE

There is a small group of islands in the Lesser Antilles where the traditions of boatbuilding were once crucial to the survival of local communities skimming a living from the sea. Hundreds of sailing vessels were once launched there.

Alwyn Enoe is one of the last boatbuilders practicing a trade passed down the generations. Approaching his 70s and with no more orders coming in, he decides to build one last sailing sloop with the hope that his sons will continue the trade.
