Utilising a treasure trove of archival footage, director Alex Holmes celebrates the history of Maiden Great Britain, the first all-female crew to compete in the Whitbread Round the World Race.

After discovering a love of sailing in her teens, Tracy Edwards dreamed of circumnavigating the globe in yachting's most prestigious competition: the Whitbread Round the World Race (now the Ocean Race), a gruelling four-month journey of 32,018 nautical miles. Infuriated by the inherent sexism in the sport, Edwards was determined to enter the race on her own terms. Team Maiden Great Britain was born, and Edwards was to helm the first all-female crew to compete in the event in 1989-90.

Despite having an incredible team, when Maiden crossed the starting line in Southampton, the press began taking bets on when the boat full of incompetent girls would drop out of the race. Unbeknownst to their critics, the crew were on course to become icons.

A testament to female strength, commitment and endurance, Maiden is this year's power ballad for feminism and being fearless, no matter the odds. Featuring exhilarating race footage alongside new interviews with the original crew, this stirring tale is sure to inspire every audience member - and to be greeted with the same rousing cheers that welcomed Maiden when she sailed into Auckland's harbour. - Kailey Carruthers
