14-year-old Laura Dekker sets out – camera in hand – on a two-year voyage in pursuit of her dream to be the youngest person ever to sail around the world alone. In the wake of a year-long battle with Dutch authorities that sparked a global storm of media scrutiny, Laura now finds herself far from land, family and unwanted attention, exploring the world in search of freedom, adventure, and distant dreams of her early youth at sea. Jillian Schlesinger’s debut feature amplifies Laura’s brave, defiant voice through a mix of Laura's own video and voice recordings at sea and intimate vérité footage from locations including the Galapagos Islands, French Polynesia, Australia, and South Africa.
Jillian Schlesinger is a Brooklyn-based filmmaker making her directorial debut with Maidentrip. She has also written and produced numerous on-air promotional campaigns for TV networks including Sundance Channel, AMC, and BBC America. Jillian grew up in Santa Cruz, California and graduated from Brown University.
