The release of the new sailing survival film All is Lost, starring Robert Redford and written and directed by J.C. Chandor, has prompted debate from sailors about the merits of the film. Does it accurately depict modern ocean voyaging? Is a feature film that highlights offshore sailing something that sailors should celebrate? Or is the movie too negative and will that scare people away from the sport?
Ocean Navigator's publisher, Alex Agnew, weighed in on the film in a recent article in the Portland Press Herald. A group of sailors were invited by the Press Herald to screen the movie and then give their reactions. You can read the piece here.
