Alone Across the Pacific Film Poster


1963 Japanese true-life drama from the acclaimed director Kon Ichikawa. Spurred on by a desire to break free from his life in Japan, young Kenichi Horie (Yujiro Ishihara) sets sail in his small boat, 'The Mermaid', to single-handedly cross the Pacific Ocean. Pounded by the waves and beset by the psychological problems of loneliness, he almost reaches breaking point, both physically and mentally. The film is based on Horie's own log of the voyage.
