The Coconut Grove Sailing Club will present the South Florida premiere of the 2013 SXSW Film Festival's Audience Award Winner, Maiden Trip. This is a one night only event on Wednesday, March 5, at 7:30 pm.
The documentary follows Dutch fourteen year-old Laura Dekker, who will stop at nothing to become the youngest person to single-handedly sail round the world.
"Observant and unassuming, the documentary looks at the significance of Laura's trip not in terms of records, but as a rite of passage, and as a way for the teen to negotiate her past".--Indie Wire
