Cinematique Presents: “Maiden”

August 19 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every day that begins at 7:00 pm, repeating until August 21, 2019

$9

Maiden runs from Monday, August 19 through Wednesday, August 21. It screens Monday to Wednesday at 7pm with an additional screening on Wednesday at 4pm in Thalian Hall’s Main Theatre.

“Maiden” is the story of how Tracy Edwards, a 24-year-old cook in charter boats, became the skipper of the first ever all-female crew to enter the Whitbread Round the World in 1989. Tracy’s inspirational dream was opposed on all sides. Male competitors thought an all-women crew would never make it, and the chauvinistic yachting press took bets on her failure. Potential sponsors rejected her, fearing they would die at sea and generate bad publicity.

But Tracy refused to give up. She remortgaged her home and bought a secondhand boat, putting everything on the line to ensure the team made it to the start line.
