Sea Gypsies: The Far Side of the World

88 mins


Many of us dream of taking leave of the daily grind and heading out into the great unknown. For some, that may be the desert, others a dusty road or winding river, but for Nico Edwards, the director and a character in Sea Gypsies: The Far Side of the World, it was the ocean.

After deciding to check out of society for a while, he found passage as a crew member on a boat called Infinity, which set sail from Australia to Patagonia via some of the planet’s roughest waters in the Ross Sea. A Mountainfilm Commitment grantee, this film manages to be smart and thoughtful, yet fun and rollicking at the same time. It documents a tremendous journey, showing what it takes — mentally, physically and nautically — to take on this kind of wild adventure.
