SeaWorthy Productions is pleased to announce the release of the feature documentary RawFaith with its premier screening at the Maine International Film Festival on July 19 and 20.

Filmed over seven years, the story of RawFaith is spun from the deck of a home built 88 foot Galleon. Built by the McKay family and launched in 2003, RawFaith experienced adventure and mishap until the shipʼs tragic loss in a December storm in the North Atlantic in 2010.

What began as a family focused project ultimately tested family unity and their individual and collective notions of commitment and obligation.

Following its premier at MIFF the film will screen at three venues across Maine in August. RawFaith will screen at the Strand in Rockland on Sunday August 11; at the Nickelodeon in Portland on August 15 and three screenings at the Frontier Cafe and Cinema in Brunswick on August 25. The film features an original soundtrack written and performed by the Camden composer and musician Gintare.
