This feature documentary delves into the story of the Empress of Ireland, an ill-fated ocean liner that sank in the Saint Lawrence River following a collision with another ship in the early hours of May 29th, 1914. Of the 1,477 people on the ship, 1,012 died in one of history's greatest maritime disasters. This film is essential viewing for nautical and history buffs, and features footage of contemporary divers taking risky plunges into the frigid waters of the Saint Lawrence to rescue the Empress' undersea remains from oblivion.
