Mailbox: Vanishing Sail – UK Premiere – Reconnecting with Scotland

I remember interviewing Alexis Andrews right here in Antigua and Barbuda about his photography, his books, and his passion project, the film Vanishing Sail. Great to see the journey he’s on as he continues to take the now award winning film around the world. This just in:

Vanishing Sail

Dear Friends,

On September 14th the harbour of Stornoway, Isle of Lewis will come alive with a parade of sail to announce our UK Premiere & opening night film at the 3rd Hebrides International Film Festival with further screenings on Barra, Harris and the communities of Berneray and Ness.

We are very excited to premiere our film for the very first time in the UK on Scottish soil as many of the first boatbuilders on the island where Vanishing Sail was filmed, came from Scotland. The Hebrides International Film Festival’s commitment to bringing meaningful international stories to their remote islands resonates deeply with our outreach programme for the film: to engage with sailors, boat builders, coastal communities and maritime heritage around the world.

Thank you to our supporters Rural Nations & Mast Partners for this unique opportunity.

With Thanks and Respect,
Alexis & Justin
