I love this short animation which was nominated for the Oscars and also official selection for the Venice Film Festival. It’s so moving…I’d usually just reblog it as I heard about it from Adventures of the Black Gang tumblr blog (one of few still going) but I don’t post there anymore (if you’re reading this on Tumblr it’s a repost from here).
“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.”
