A beautiful short film about sailing and the switch to steam, it was shortlisted for an Oscar and in the Venice Film Festival Selection, and I can see why. (via Adventures of the Black Gang)
Here’s the blurb:
Set on the open ocean in 1900, Age of Sail is the story of William Avery (voiced by Ian McShane), an old sailor adrift and alone in the North Atlantic. When Avery reluctantly rescues Lara, who has mysteriously fallen overboard, he finds redemption and hope in his darkest hours. Directed by ACADEMY AWARD-winning filmmaker John Kahrs. Produced with Chromosphere and Evil Eye Pictures.
