A film by Gene Anthony
Running Time: 53 minutes.
In 1978, photographer and writer Gene Anthony achieved a personal quest. His sea story takes us on an inspirational odyssey to Cape Horn Island at the very southern tip of the Americas. We voyage by way of Gene’s lifelong fascination with all things nautical, his highly successful career as a maritime photojournalist, and his triumphant journey to the very summit of Cape Horn Island.
Odyssey to Cape Horn Island
Along the way we learn quite a bit of history about Cape Horn, cross the Pacific aboard the Chilean Navy’s four-masted barquentine, Esmeralda, sail aboard an Alden schooner with San Francisco Poet, Lawrence Ferlinghetti, and meet legendary cruising pioneer and sailing author, Hal Roth fighting to rescue his yacht, Whisper. And with each of these adventures, we experience the resolution, tenacity, and faith that made Gene Anthony’s odyssey to Cape Horn Island a reality.
Narrated by Peter Coyote, narrator for The Roosevelts: An Intimate History and other Ken Burns documentaries.
