The Last Sailors chronicles the working sailing craft still underway in the final decades of the twentieth century. Orson Welles' narration gives the film the gravitas this subject deserves, as most of these sailors and their craft have now vanished forever.

You may have seen parts on Youtube, but this is the full series distributed under agreement with Bennett Marine, the main distributor for the Producers.

To make this documentary series, Director Neil Hollander sailed a ten-meter sailboat nearly 25,000 miles over three years to isolated locales around the world. He filmed in 15 countries, meeting and working alongside men who still earned their livings from the sea in the old traditions of sail. He later wrote a book of the same title recalling his experiences with eight surviving sailing craft, all representative of distinct cultures or geographic locations.
“Magnificent footage of the beauty of the sea and the splendid geometry of sail."- New York Times
Born 1939, Neil Hollander is an American writer, film director and producer, journalist and sailor who has sailed across the Atlantic, Pacific and Indian Oceans. He has conducted more than thirty interviews with Nobel Prize winners, and his work has been exhibited in a number of museums, among them the Smithsonian, the Deutsches Museum, and the Jim Thompson House in Bangkok.

Born on May 6, 1915, in Kenosha, Wisconsin, Orson Welles began his career as a stage actor before going on to radio, creating his unforgettable version of H.G. "Wells's War of the Worlds". In film, he left his artistically indelible mark with such works as "Citizen Kane and "The Magnificent Ambersons". He died of a heart attack in Los Angeles, California, on October 10, 1985.
