Mad Ship is loosely based on the depression-era true story of a Scandinavian immigrant who, upon the death of his beloved wife, decided to build a huge boat and sail out of the Prairie’s dust-bowl. A captivating tale that has long caught the eye of many a storyteller, it's first-time director David Mortin who has taken up the challenge to bring the unusual, quixotic Canadian tale to the big screen 

Shot in Manitoba, the film stars Nikolaj Lie KaasGil Bellows, Line Verndal, Gage Munroe, Martha Burns, Lane Styles, Aidan Devine and Rachel Blanchard. Premiering November 30 at the Whistler Film Festival, the film is set for a limited release in early 2013.

Check out the first official poster from the film below, just in time for its festival debut:
