ANGELIKA’S NOTE

Jillian Schlesinger's debut feature took home the Audience Award at the SXSW Film Festival. It follows 14-year-old Laura Decker, who sets out on a two-year voyage in pursuit of her dream to become the youngest person ever to sail around the world alone. Heralded as "potent" and "inspiring" by Time Out New York, it eloquently 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.
