VIDEO: To propose an alternative

Published on December 9th, 2017

Sea Pilgrim is a meditative film on Brazilian sailor Tassio Azambuja who had been living and traveling onboard his sailboat for the last 9 years.

“While sailing alone this past year, the silence I felt petrified me,” explained film director Will Mayer. “It opened up a great amount of insignificance in my own life. As a response to this, I set out to create this film exploring silence in a day and age infiltrated with busyness.

“We’ve become conditioned that the pursuit of fame and commercial success are the only ways we can be content. My hope is simply to propose an alternative. Living a life dedicated to the surrender of something greater than yourself. Something unknown.”

The movie is now at various film festivals around the world. Vimeo featured the film as a Short of the Week, a launching ground by Vimeo for a new generation of filmmakers.
