Visions, 2013
"Freedom is when you're not attached to anything." And so begins the solo sail around the world by the enterprising Laura Dekker. Most people probably couldn't fathom such a feat but she did... at age 13. Dekker was 16 when she completed her journey and via her own camera work and that of director Jillian Schlesinger, this documentary tells the tale of bravery, courage and a vision of the world through new eyes.
