CIFF Selects presents “Coyote”, the inspiring story of legendary American sailor, Mike Plant.
Film : Genre: Documentary
CIFF Selects: Coyote | 7:00 PM
Spanning the decade from his arrival in professional offshore sailing in the mid 80's, the film follows Plant's daring spirit as he challenges both Mother Nature - around the world alone on a sailboat - and French dominance in the sport. Chronically underfunded and undermanned, Plant's thirst for adventure and fearless belief in his dreams drive him to become an American hero of the sea. Plant's life before competitive sailing included a solo trek of South America, an escape from Interpol on a drug trafficking charge and time behind bars in a Portuguese prison. Yet, these exploits and others reveal the type of restless soul capable of conquering the world's oceans alone. Despite all that he accomplishes, Plant's heart is never satisfied. His final creation, Coyote, a radically designed vessel built on the edge of speed and safety, symbolizes Plant's course in life: running before the wind, always with an eye to the sea.
