THE MYSTERY OF BRITANNIC

"The Mystery of Britannic" - a historical docudrama project that reveals the unique scenery and terrible fate of the sister ship of the famous Titanic. The project presents an on-screen combination of re-enacted historical events intertwined with scientific underwater documentary footage from the famous wreck.
The narration of the re-enacted story is being done by Nelly - who has departed her affluent family to serve as a newly recruited volunteer nurse on the hospital ship. Nelly shares her heart-piercing story of a courageous voyage aboard of the legendary Britannic - an ill-fated ocean liner, converted into the military hospital ship, bound for a shattering demise.
One of the most famous shipwreck researchers, Richard Kohler, helps the viewer to clearly apprehend the documentary materials. High-tech, deep-ocean submersibles and underwater research equipment allowed us to capture the unique footage of a sleeping giant at depths exceeding 100 meters.
Behold the long-gone wreck of the hospital ship in all her silent glory – HMS Britannic.

THE PERSEUS
SURVIVOR

The documentary drama takes the viewer back in 1941, into the outburst of the Second World War, deep underwater where one of the submariners is struggling to escape the sunken HMS Perseus – JOHN CAPES.
