MAIDEN

Director's Statement
Maiden is one of those inspirational stories that, once heard, you are unlikely to forget. And so it was for me. My first encounter with Tracy Edwards was when she came to give a speech at my daughter's elementary school. I was struck not only by the power of the story but by Tracy's passion and commitment. And I knew straight away that I wanted to make a film that celebrated her achievement.

Four years later I am delighted to be able to say: here we are.

Maiden is a film about guts and the power of determination, about how when we are allowed to believe in ourselves great things are possible. It's the story of a young girl who dared to dream and of a team that came together to challenge chauvinism and set an example to the world.

Tracy's story is as relevant today as it was back when she and her crew completed their momentous journey. In many areas of life prejudice and chauvinism still hold sway, but hopefully this film will help remind us that whoever we are, male or female, we should chase our dreams even if it appears we are up against insurmountable odds.
