The National Museum of the Great Lakes is so excited to announce that the documentary that we produced in conjunction with Allied Media, A Good Ship and Crew Well Seasoned: The Fitzgerald and her Legacy, has been selected for screening and competition at the 7th Annual Chagrin Documentary Film Festival. This festival takes place October 5-9, 2016 in various venues around Chagrin Falls, Ohio.
This is an extraordinary honor for us and we hope that you will consider coming out to Chagrin Falls on Wednesday, October 5 at 4 pm to see the film and support NMGL.
A Good Ship and Crew Well Seasoned explores the less documented and overlooked history of the Fitzgerald and her crew before their tragic loss through unpublished manuscript material and photographs while at the same time reflecting on the impact of their loss on family, friends, and colleagues in the maritime community. The film takes a refreshing break from debating the possible cause of her loss in order to direct more time to those important historical questions not yet asked.
You can purchase the film on DVD by calling our store at 419-214-5000 x 200.
