Sea Gypsies: The Far Side of the World | USA | Documentary | Nicholas Edwards | 90 min


The vessel is Infinity, a 120 foot hand-built gypsy boat, crewed by a band of self-described miscreants. The journey, an 8,000 mile Pacific crossing, from New Zealand to Patagonia, with a stop in Antarctica. Unlike the other boats heading to Antarctica, Infinity is no well-financed, ice-reinforced super yacht, crewed by well-paid professional sailors with carefully thought out agendas. Infinity lives in the moment and sails on a whim, without permission or insurance of any kind. What can to be found in abundance onboard, is blood, sweat, enthusiasm, disdain for authority, and an ample supply of alcohol. It’s a mad voyage of reckless adventure just for the thrill of it. Along the way the crew will battle a hurricane of ice in the Ross Sea, assist the radical environmental group Sea Shepherd in their fight with Japanese whalers, and tear every sail they have aboard. Underlying this dramatic sailing adventure is a quest for the sense of wonder only provided by the power of the natural world. This story touches on environmental activism, the diminishing ecosystem, and the freedom of exploration, which is no longer reserved for the elite.
