A Documentary FeaturE from
One man's dream to build a boat
... and sail it home.
One Long Journey follows the adventures of Vik Pengilly-Johnson as he attempts to fulfill a lifelong dream and to escape the lonely confines of his flat in the South of England. To the dismay of his family, Vik announces on his seventieth birthday, that despite having no money, he will rebuild the broken shell of a river cruiser that he has found in a northern boatyard and then sail it home. What ensues is a drama of impossible loves set upon English waterways, where home is lost and found.
Our film crew spent five months living Vik’s adventure alongside him. The involved and intimate camera and sound recording merge with an evocative music score, composed by Manchester electro-blues duo, Walk. This artistic collaboration aims to evoke a sense of place and engage the audience in their own experience of Vik’s difficult journey.
The soundtrack was provided by Manchester electro-blues duo Walk. You can hear a selection of tracks and purchase our soundtrack EP, The Boatyard, below.
