Close Up series
Jon Bowermaster and Oceans 8 Films premiere “WindShipped,” (40 min.), the story of the “Schooner Apollonia,” the dream of a Quixotic captain, Sam Merrett, to restart cargo delivery up and down the Hudson River by sail, sans fossil fuels. Playing on the theme of delivery by cargo boat, Jon Bowermaster’s short “Slowboat to Somewhere” (25 min.) opens the night’s screening.
On hand for the Q&A to follow will be Sam Merrett and the crew of the “Apollonia,” and the filmmakers.
