The Last Sailors (1983)[DVDrip (XVid)]
The Final Days of Working Sail
Narrated by Orson Wells
Produced by Adventure Films Productions
Here you will find the true saga of sail - largely unfamiliar and overlooked. It is some cause for rejoicing that some record of these wonderful "old men of the sea" has been preserved...
During a two-year voyage, traveling roughly 25,000 miles though the Atlantic, Pacific and Indian Oceans, Neil Hollander and Harald Mertes filmed a vanishing breed of sailors and craft. These men, who harness the wind and the sea to gain their livelihood, are on the verge of extinction, often being left behind in the wake of technology, and yet in some or the farthest regions of the globe - from China to Indonesia, from Egypt to Brazil - vestiges of this traditional way of life remain.
In this fascinating and evocative programme, the film makers succeed in capturing the spirit of a bygone era when men set out under sail to explore and trade.
Filmed in 1983 with Orson Wells dulcet tones and a haunting soundtrack that will stay in your mind, a lot of the scenes filmed have already disappeared forever.
A must see for anyone with a love of the sea and sail.
