This year, we have a variety of films with something for everyone. In a feature blog series, we’ll be highlighting the festival’s documentaries to whet your appetite about what to expect at Projecting Change.

The first movie we want to talk about is the transcendent documentary, Maidentrip. A real life coming-of-age story, Maidentrip follows 14-year-old Laura Dekker’s life as she becomes the youngest person ever to sail around the world alone.

Her two-year journey is captured in film with moments of her highs and joys for travel as well as the growing pains of a young free-spirited teenager taking on something larger than herself.

Directed by Jillian Schlesinger, this passionate film has already won a string of awards from SXSW, Camden International Film Festival and the Mountain Film in Telluride. We expect this movie to be just as celebrated at Projecting Change.
