Day three of the 11-day all-documentary film festival. NHdocs presents MANRY AT SEA ~ In the Wake of a Dream In 1965, newspaper editor Robert Manry was a happily married family man in Cleveland, Ohio. His colleagues at the Plain Dealer were shocked to learn he had set sail on a solo voyage across the Atlantic in his 13½-foot sloop, Tinkerbelle. By the time his 78-day odyssey ended, Manry had become the target of a wild cat and mouse news media chase, was welcomed by a cheering throng of 50,000 Britons and had become a hero to his countrymen ~ and to dreamers everywhere… Director and sailor Steve Wystrach’s exhaustive research and inventive storytelling complement Manry’s intimate documentation of Tinkerbelle’s voyage, in an adventurous search for this unlikely American hero.
