Synopsis: LEGENDS OF MAGDALEN explores the shipwrecks and treasures of Québec’s Magdalen Islands, one of North America’s greatest underwater cemeteries. Over 300 sunken ships have been documented by Leonard Clark, a local fisherman, farmer, amateur archaeologist and the film’s guide into this amazing world.
Local Madelinots discover coins, wooden relics, and other artefacts from centuries of European shipwrecks along the beaches of the Islands. Our film delivers the narratives of both historical and living legends of these remote red-sand atolls!
LEGENDS is a winner of the Quebec Anglophone Heritage Network’s StoryNet Documentary Film Challenge, as well as the Rogers Documentary Film Fund Grant, as well as at the Royal Reel Award at the Canadian International Film Festival (CIFF).
