Google Spotlight Stories' AGE OF SAIL, which made its premiere at the Venice Film Festival, was directed by the Oscar®-winning filmmaker John Kahrs (Paperman), produced with Chromosphere by Gennie Rim (duet, June, Dear Basketball) and David Eisenmann (Pearl, Son of Jaguar) and executive produced by Karen Dufilho and Jan Pinkava. Set on the open ocean in 1900, AGE OF SAIL is the story of William Avery (played by Ian McShane), an old sailor adrift and alone in the North Atlantic. When Avery reluctantly rescues a teen (played by Cathy Ang) who has mysteriously fallen overboard, Avery finds redemption and hope in his darkest hours. AGE OF SAIL is now available on multiple platforms, was named a Vimeo Staff Pick and has received four Annie Award nominations.
