Golden Globe winner and Marthas Vineyard resident Jeffrey Kusama-Hinte (Producer, The Kids Are Alright) brings us his most recent project, an extraordinary film about the Gannon & Benjamin Marine Railway. Ross Gannon and Nat Benjamin established their Vineyard Haven boatyard in 1980 with the purpose of designing, building, and maintaining traditionally-built wooden boats. After a long career of making boats for others, Nat embarks on building a fifty-foot gaff-rigged schooner for use by his family and friends—her name is Charlotte. Through its careful portrayal of the everyday activities in and around the boatyard, the film emerges as a meditation on craftsmanship, tradition, family, community, and the love of the sea.
