Fall Film Series: The Fitzgerald Tragedy

November 9 2019 | 2:00pm to 3:00pm

* Please note: this month's film series will only be shown on Saturday due to the Lost Mariners program.

Twenty years of documentary filmmaking and exclusive interviews with people closest to the disaster are presented in “The Fitzgerald Tragedy”—an historical narrative as told by those closest to the most famous ore carrier to ever sail the Great Lakes. Ship captains and crew members, Coast Guard personnel, lighthouse keepers, commercial fishermen, maritime historians, authors, divers and other maritime experts all give their theories and opinions as to what caused the S.S. Edmund Fitzgerald’s demise on Lake Superior.

Shown at the Dossin Great Lakes Museum. Running time: 60 minutes. Admission is FREE.
