Labor of Love

production assistance and making of during the shooting

The Mahayana Schooner made it’s maiden voyage, crossing from Lunenberg in Canada to the port of Horta on Faial Island. A traditionally built wooden motorless sailboat is a rare sighting at Marina da Horta. The captain and his crew repair the boat, after the main boom and foremast gaff have been damaged during the crossing. The boat belongs to The Blue Dream Project and the purpose of their travels is to spread the message about plastic pollution in the oceans. The film debut happened during the first anniversary of Cineclube do Faial.
