The documentary OPTIMIST, has received worldwide acclaim and has inspired 1000s of people at film festivals around the world.

This is the unique story of Greg Bertish and his journey around the Cape of Storms in his 8 foot Little Optimist Sailing dinghy, to fulfill a promise and raise funds to renovate the biggest Children’s Hospital in the Southern Hemisphere.

Greg’s story takes us on a journey of medical hardship, the 200 days he spent in hospital, the inspiring children he meets along the way, and a crazy sailing adventure that inspires and raises funds for a hospital.

We donate $1 (or more) to charity AND x1 Little Optimist Book (Hard copy) to a marginalised child in South Africa, for each download of the movie.

Help us to reach more children in South Africa
