Join us for another episode of Washed Ashore as Charlotte, Vicky and Max discuss some of their favourite (and least favourite...) maritime based films.
Films help us to visualise parts of maritime history that we would never be able to see. They bring swashbuckling pirates to life, play on human fears of being lost at sea or allow the audience to have an adventure from the comfort of our sofas. The team also discuss what impact this has on our understanding of maritime history and whether entertainment is just as important as historical accuracy.
The films discussed include
Muppet Treasure Island (1996)
Captain Kidd (1945)
Pirates of the Caribbean (2003)
The Boat that Rocked (2009)
Mutiny on the Bounty (1935, 1962 & 1984)
Master and Commander (2003)
Titanic 2 (2010)
A Night to Remember (1958)
Peter Pan (1953)
Life of Pi (2012)
Shipyard Sally (1939)
The Silver Fleet (1943)
Good Luck Mr Yates (1943)
Seawards the Ships (1962)
