Australian teenager Jesse Martin became the youngest person to sail solo, unassisted, and nonstop around the world, and his battles against monumental obstacles are chronicled in Lionheart, much of which Martin shot himself with a video camera mounted aboard his sailboat. Martin's 1999 journey was inspirational (25,000 people assembled to watch him arrive back home in Australia at the journey's end), and the film plays heavily upon the theme of Martin being a role model for young people. Some of the many who were rooting for him, including Peter Garrett of the Aussie rock band Midnight Oil, appear on camera to speak glowingly of Martin's determination. The footage, including some searing scenes of him freaking out while his boat was being battered by relentless bad weather, is dramatic. But at times the inherently claustrophobic nature of the tiny cabin on the small boat seems to undermine the drama taking place on the open ocean. --Robert J. McNamara

Release Note

As a 17-year-old teenager, Jesse Martin set out on a journey to fulfill a dream few thought possible. By circumnavigating the world in his 34-foot yacht, Lionheart, Jesse would become the youngest person in history to sail around the world solo, nonstop and unassisted. It is an intimate record of his days alone at sea, transporting viewers onto the deck of Lionheart through Jesse's unique and candid approach to filming. From the joy of watching dolphins chase Lionheart to the dramatic moments as Jesse battles terrifying storms and unrelenting knockdowns, this documentary captures all the highs and lows of his incredible journey. This is truly a story of sheer inspiration and the power of chasing a dream that will uplift and motivate people of all ages.
