Quest for the ultimate prize

The Luna Rossa Journey

Luna Rossa’s quest for the America's Cup began two decades ago. An epic win of the Louis Vuitton Cup in Auckland in 2000, defeating America One, to move on to the America's Cup finals against Team New Zealand was a defining moment for Patrizio Bertelli’s Italian challenge that has endured the test of time and continues their pursuit in the 36th America's Cup presented by Prada.

Produced by award winning producer, Michael Mann and renowned editor, Claire Simpson (Academy Award for Platoon) this film captures the extreme moments on the water, from the America's Cup racing in Auckland to Valencia and on to San Francisco. 

In the words of the late Sir Peter Blake: ‘You didn't win…but you only lose if you don’t have the courage to return.” Overcoming disappointing, to challenge again, the film explores the intensity of human resolve that makes the America's Cup the most complex trophy to win.
