South Street Seaport Museum Presents All Hands on Deck Film Screening

December 2, 2023 @ 2:30 PM - 5:00 PM


Join the South Street Seaport Museum for a live-narrated screening of the documentary All Hands on Deck: A Modern-Day High Seas Adventure to the Far Side of the World. The free event will be held on Saturday, December 2, 2023, at 2:30pm. seaportmuseum.org/rose

Come aboard the tall ship Wavertree for a unique experience that will bring to life the documentary film “All Hands on Deck: A Modern-Day High Seas Adventure to the Far Side of the World.”

Join us for an immersive event where you’ll become part of the captivating journey of a diverse crew of 30 passionate individuals, including our narrator Will Sofrin. “All Hands on Deck” will show how the fearless team set sail on a daring voyage, tasked with transporting a replica of the 18th century warship Rose from its home in Newport, Rhode Island, to the bustling heart of Hollywood for use in the 2003 film Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World. We will see how the crew effectively went back in time to bring to life the old ways of the maritime world, and their hard work on the high seas.

The documentary illustrates the full experience, including an actual dismasting of the ship––which we will see while on Wavertree, who experienced a dismasting that ended her sailing career. You will be on the edge of your seat as we watch the crew confront unpredictable storm-tossed seas.

The film runs for 32 minutes, offering an intense and captivating narrative. Registration is encouraged for this free event but walkups will be accommodated as possible. A Q&A, book signing, and free wine or sparkling water will follow the presentation. It can be chilly this time of year and this program takes place below the main deck of Wavertree, which is not a temperature-controlled environment. Make sure to bring a coat and dress accordingly.

Will Sofrin’s book, All Hands on Deck: A Modern-Day High Seas Adventure to the Far Side of the World, will be available at the event for purchase and author signing.
