The Old Man and the Sea: Return to Cuba

Posted on

*Winner of the Key West Film Festival 2018*

What would life be like if you could step away from shore and live your life on the sea? To find out, we jump aboard WOLF, a 74 foot topsail schooner commanded by Admiral Finbar Gittelman, a 75 year old master sailor from Key West Florida. Finbar weaves tales of his adventures at sea as we witness the open water like never before. Finbar’s family fled Cuba during the height of Castro’s revolution, now he returns for the first time in 50 years to walk the streets and see what remains of his former home.

Filmed in Key West, the Florida Straits and in various locations in Cuba, this documentary is filled with exceptional vistas as well as original Cuban Music and newly recorded sea shanties made especially for this film.
