Wind Gods

Series Website »
The Wind Gods is a thrilling, action-packed documentary relating the story of the 33rd America's Cup yacht race, in which Oracle Corporation owner Larry Ellison's American yacht USA-17, representing the Golden Gate Yacht Club, defeated the Swiss-owned Alinghi 5 yacht of Italian entrepreneur Ernesto Bertarelli. Beautifully shot with unique footage of the famous race, the film documents Ellison's effort to bring the America's Cup back to the United States after 18 years. The documentary is a powerful celebration of life on the ocean, and the men and women who spend their lives seeking to conquer it. Directed by Peabody-award winner Fritz Mitchell and produced by Skydance Productions, the soaring orchestral score by composer Pinar Toprak received the International Film Music Critics Association Award for Best Documentary Score in 2011.
