Product Description

After his disappearance on May 29, 1914, the Empress of Ireland still arouses passionate curiosity of crowds. Shipwreck disaster (there are more than twelve thousand victims), this documentary reconstructs the investigative stages of drama and addresses a number of issues. Why for example, have sailed with a ship whose rudder was defective? Why watertight doors were not closed at the time of the collision, which resulted in a rapid sinking? And the inquiry has withheld nothing? Why a key witness is found dead and his testimony was never retained by the same commission of inquiry? Thanks to recent investigations, expert witnesses and numerous reconstructions, the investigative documentary sheds new light on one of the biggest news story of the twentieth century and has become a final sum on the subject. ___________________________ Après sa disparition, le 29 Mai 1914, l'Empress of Ireland suscite toujours la curiosité passionnée des foules. Naufrage catastrophe (il y eut plus de mille douze victimes), ce documentaire d'enquête reconstitue les étapes du drame et répond à un certain nombre de questions. Pourquoi, par exemple, avoir navigué avec un navire dont le gouvernail était défectueux ? Pourquoi les portes étanches n'ont pas été fermées au moment de la collision au point d'entraîner un naufrage aussi rapide ? Et la commission n’en a rien retenu ? Pourquoi un des principaux témoin est retrouvé mort et que son témoignage n?a jamais été retenu par la commission d'enquête ? Grâce à ces dernières investigations, grâce aux témoignages d'experts et aux nombreuses reconstitutions, ce documentaire éclaire d'une lumière nouvelle l’un des plus grands faits divers du XXe siècle et s'impose comme une somme définitive sur le sujet.
