THE GREAT OUTDOORS

UK 2019, 91 min Director JEN RANDALL
In 2011, 26-year-old Sarah Outen decided she needed a life-changing adventure, and what could be more thrilling and life-altering than circumnavigating the globe by human power alone? This meant traveling over 20,000 miles by bike, kayak, and rowboat across Europe, Asia, North America, and, finally, the Atlantic. The course of her voyage was followed by thousands, who were hooked on her infectious humor and joie de vivre. Not everything went as planned, however, and her solo journey began to take its toll with months of solitude, violent weather, and unforeseen setbacks that stretched her quest out to more than four years. Woven out of hundreds of hours of footage, Home intimately and unflinchingly captures Outen’s journey, telling a story of heart and soul, of struggle and joy.
