Three paralyzed men take up one of sailing’s most grueling challenges—a 750 mile race to Alaska through some of the most treacherous and remote waters on the planet. With no motors allowed and many miles from any help, the competition can be too dangerous for the world’s most fearless sailors. This team is out to prove they have what it takes to finish. A film by Great Big Films.
This Really Great Big Story was made in collaboration with our friends at CNN Films. It is one of 12 short films that we will be releasing throughout the year. Stay tuned for more!
"A benevolent queen of the beach", Carol Schultz has a lifetime of lessons learned from the ocean. A native of San Francisco, she spends her days at the beach, swimming in the rugged cold Pacific. At 82 years old, she credits the sun and sea as her fountain of youth.
As Bahama's, Afie Jurvanen sings of the ocean's cold kiss, Carol's story emerged in a beautifully symbiotic and natural way. With a frenetic, archival feel we captured a true day in Carol's life. Pairing these raw visuals with the beautifully swelling 'Waves', a unique pairing was created.
Directed, shot and edited by Tyler Manson.
Produced by Brushfire Records, for Bahamas new album, BAHAMAS IS AFIE. tylermanson.com bahamasmusic.net
