In 1969 Donald Crowhurst, a dark horse in the Golden Globe Around-the-World Solo Sailing Race, appeared on the verge of triumph. But two weeks before he was scheduled to cross the finish line, he disappeared. His trimaran, Teignmouth Electron, was found floating in the North Atlantic, with no sign of its captain. When his logs were discovered on board, a shocking story began to unfold. Ghost River tells this amazing adventure story using a palette of live video projection and constructed image to explore the art of deception. It’s a visually stunning multimedia journey into the deep waters of a human soul.
