Schlesigner created “Maidentrip” by editing footage that the fiercely independent Dekker shot – both of her surroundings and of herself, narrating to the camera – on her two-year voyage.

The film also tackles Dekker’s yearlong fight with Dutch authorities to get the opportunity for the trip.

Not rated (some profanity). 1:22. In Dutch and English with English subtitles.
