Maritime Gloucester hosts a special film screening at the Cape Ann Community Cinema featuring Maidentrip, a film about a young girl who sails around the world alone. This award-winning documentary is about the life and adventures of 14 year-old Laura Dekker, as she heads out to sea alone to circumnavigate the globe - camera in hand - on a two-year voyage in pursuit of her dream.
In the wake of a year-long battle with Dutch authorities that sparked a global storm of media scrutiny, Laura now finds herself far from land, family and unwanted attention, exploring the world in search of freedom, adventure, and distant dreams of her early youth at sea. Jillian Schlesinger’s debut feature amplifies Laura’s brave, defiant voice through a mix of Laura's own video and voice recordings at sea and intimate vérité footage from locations including the Galapagos Islands, French Polynesia, Australia, and South Africa.
