Christopher Columbus: the explorer who changed the world. His four voyages and countless extraordinary discoveries ended the Middle Ages and set the Renaissance alight. And yet Columbus was a man torn between his theological beliefs and the geographic truths he was discovering. A man unable to believe what he saw with his very eyes. He died not knowing that he had fathered a revolution...

Follow French yachtsman Marc Thiercelin as he sails the seas in Columbus’ wake. Without GPS!

Experience these voyages of discovery the same way the captain and his crew did. 20’ of this 52’ film draws on 2D and 3D technology. 3D imagery brings Columbus’ maps to life. Archive footage provides real images of how the virgin lands and its inhabitants must have seemed to the great explorer.

Watch and wonder as Columbus redraws the world map and begs God for guidance.
