The Spirit of Sailing

Jørgen Ekberg, Denmark, 1969

13 min.DK/DocumentaryPortrait films

Sports is not necessarily competition, nor show or excercising. The great talent may first and foremost be seen as an artist among other artists, having a genius for
expressing himself through his athletic abilities. This film shows Paul Elvstrøm sailing in three different types of boats while telling about his experiences on the sea.

Det Danske Filminstitut registrerer international festivaldeltagelse og priser til danske film, dog primært de titler, som Filminstituttet varetager i sin festivaldistribution, og primært i forbindelse med de festivaler, som Filminstituttet har prioriteret at samarbejde med. Registreringen af festivaldeltagelse og priser til danske film, der ikke er i festivaldistribution, foretages kun for "launch"-festivaler ifølge Filminstituttets prioriterede festivalliste.
