This Independent Feature Documentary explores the themes of perseverance in the face of extreme adversity, and raises awareness about mental health, psychedelics and ocean conservation through a first-hand, intimate account of one man’s daring and uplifting journey.
The Longest Trip, is a documentary film featuring Tez Steinberg, an endurance athlete about to row 5,000 miles – alone – from Hawaii to Australia, all while microdosing. He faces unique stakes in this ultimate test of mind and body. Passion for ocean conservation and the recent loss of his mom to suicide – six years after his father made the same choice – are powerful motivators. But an unexpected heart attack 5 months before he was planning to depart leaves lingering questions about the risks he will face at sea. What will this journey to the brinks of human endurance teach us about resilience and the human spirit?Donate
