A truly unique documentary DVD of a small kiwi home-built yacht’s voyage to the windiest location on the planet – a remote Antarctic cape southwest of New Zealand.
Twenty-one year old Kiwi first-time film-maker Matt Tucker broke all records in Tasmania’s ‘Longest Night Film Festival’ with the original version of this film, which has recently been re-edited to include more footage.
Acclaimed in Australia for its spectacular footage coupled with the unusual dynamics between two brothers and their cabinboy father as they face extreme conditions with understated humour, this film has now been released in New Zealand.
More than any typical Antarctic documentary, this movie has enthralled viewers of all ages and backgrounds, and proves what can be achieved on a tiny budget and the right attitude.
It belongs on a shelf alongside the book of this voyage – Snow Petrel, by Jon Tucker – and is sure to become a maritime classic in years to come.
