Winner of the Best Documentary award at the Rome Film Festival and one of the Sunday Times Films of the Decade, Deep Water is the remarkable true story of the first solo, non-stop, round-the-world-boat race and the psychologival toll it took on its competitors.
In 1968, the Sunday Times of London sponsored a race that attracted a field of nine, including amateur sailor Donald Crowhurst. Battling treacherous seas and his own demons. Crowhurst comes apart as he faces the isolation of nine months on the high seas.
Part adventure yarn and part metaphysical mystery, this film charts one man’s journey into his own heart of darkness.
