Legends of Magdalen: shipwrecks and treasure

Magdalen-cliffside.jpgLegends 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.
