About the Film
The vessel is Infinity, a 120-foot hand-built sailboat, crewed by a band of miscreants. The journey, an 8,000 mile Pacific crossing from New Zealand to Patagonia, with a stop in Antarctica. Unlike all the other boats heading to the Southern Ocean, Infinity is no ice-reinforced super-yacht crewed by professional sailors; rather, Infinity lives in the moment and sails on a whim. What can be found in abundance on board is blood, sweat, enthusiasm, risk tolerance, disdain for authority, and an ample supply of alcohol – all in all a mad voyage of reckless adventure just for the sheer joy 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 illegal whalers, and tear every sail they have. At the heart of their journey is a quest for awe and a sense of wonder with the raw power of the natural world.
A spectacular tale of tantalising adventure
Beautiful cinematography and story of a life few dare to live. If you love adventure documentaries, curious fellows and sexy french men - this is the film for you. Watch it in bed with a glass of red wine and you won’t regret it. Then get out of bed and start living.
Really enjoyable romp of a sea adventure. Stunning filming and an intriguing combination of characters, situations and ideas, which give an awesome insight into an extreme sailing adventure.
