City of Water Day

July 13, 5pm.
Free

Come out for a timely screening of the inspiring short film WindShipped (dir. Jon Bowermaster, 2022, 39 min.), co-presented by the Waterfront Alliance and the Climate Film Festival at the South Street Seaport Museum. Bringing together past, present, and future on the Hudson River, WindShipped reveals the intersections between climate solutions, fossil-free cargo, and community action on New York’s waterways. A thought-provoking panel discussion with the filmmakers and protagonists will follow the screening. About the Film: What started as one man’s quixotic dream has turned into reality. For the past five years the 65-foot Schooner Apollonia has been delivering goods up and down the Hudson River by sail—sans fossil fuels—a throwback to a time when there were 1,200 such boats on the river each day. It turns out buyers prefer the non-polluting, anti-Amazon way of making deliveries. Advanced registration is suggested for this free event, but walk-ups will be accommodated as possible and drop-ins are welcome.
