Legends of Magdalen is a documentary that explores the history of shipwrecks on the Magdalen Islands.
The film had its world premiere last night at Old Harry church on the Islands. Tonight at 7:00 pm, the rest of us can see it too on CBC television's Absolutely Quebec, a summer series of films by Quebeckers, and about Quebeckers. (It will also be posted on the Absolutely Quebec website.)
Gregory Gallagher is the executive producer of Legends of Magdalen. He spoke with Elizabeth Robertson about shipwrecks, treasure and the islanders who've chased both for many years.
*For those of you on the Magdalen Islands, there's another showing in the presence of part of the film team at the Musée de la mer in Havre Aubert on Sunday.

He set out from Ilinois to meet a special effects pioneer in Hollywood.
But he got much more: a chance encounter with Stephen Spielberg, a tour of George Lucas' special effects company, Industrial Light and Magic, and an advance screening of a very special movie -- Star Wars.
The ground-breaking sci-fi movie premiered on May 25th, 1977, and now Patrick Read Johnson pays hommage to that date in the title of his new movie, 5-25-77. It's his story, a coming-of-age story, and he's been trying to tell it for more than 10 years.
Patrick Read Johnson is in Montreal for two screenings of the movie at the Fantasia film festival. He tells Elizabeth Robertson his story.
