Depot Docs: Following Seas
Special guests, co-directors: Tyler & Araby Kelly
In 1960, Bob and Nancy Griffith set out on their 53-foot sailboat to chase a dream: to be free - free from bosses, rent, and red tape. From that moment they were wedded to the sea, steering their 53-foot cutter Awahnee literally to the ends of the earth. They spent the decades of the 1960s and 70s sailing to places no small boat ever had been before, raising three children at sea, and navigating the relentless pull of family and adventure.
Combining recent interviews with 16-millimeter home movies
shot by Nancy on location from Antarctica to Polynesia,
Following Seas is not only a story of world records and sailing feats, but of a family who truly lived a self-determined life and made the sacrifices their dream demanded.
A real-life Swiss Family Robinson...
with one riveting adventure after another.
