The Mercy (12A) + archive shorts from SWFTA

Friday 9th March 2018 - Tuesday 20th March 2018

This is the incredible true story of Donald Crowhurst, the amateur sailor who competed in the 1968 Sunday Times Golden Globe Race in the hope of becoming the first person in history to single-handedly circumnavigate the globe without stopping. With an unfinished boat and his business and house on the line, Donald left his wife and children behind, embarking on an adventure on his boat the Teignmouth Electron.

The tragic story of his solo voyage and the struggles he confronted on the epic journey is one of the most enduring mysteries of recent times and one which many people in the South West will remember. We will be screening archive footage of Crowhurst and the race from SWFTA before the film.

Dir. James Marsh, UK, 2017, 102 mins. Cast. Colin Firth, Rachel Weisz, David Thewlis.
