White Thunder

2004 Rated NR 52m

Director Victoria King helms this documentary about the fateful 1931 voyage of the S.S. Viking, which sailed from Newfoundland with plans to film (aboard the ship) the final scenes of a lavish Hollywood picture about Newfoundland sealers. Sadly, an explosion on the vessel took the lives of the filmmaker, Varick Frissell, and 26 others. King delves into the tragedy in this affecting film, also taking time to cover Frissell's enduring life story.
