Kitchen Stove Film Series | Maiden
Directed by Alex Holmes
It starts with a warning: “The ocean’s always trying to kill you, it doesn’t take a break.” But the obstacles awaiting the subjects of this thrilling and uplifting documentary go far beyond the sea itself. Tracing the journey of forward-thinking crew cook turned sailor, Tracy Edwards, Maiden unspools a heart-pounding race around the world, but the true challenges facing Edwards and her all-woman crew include institutionalized sexism, a media circus, and crushing self-doubt.
Maiden is simply riveting, a story of grandeur and sweep that’s also moving and intimate. Paul Byrnes, Sydney Morning Herald.
