Author/Director: Pablo Casasola
At the beginning of 2013, 34 crew members crossed the Atlantic on board a 17th century galleon, recreating the achievement of the first discoverers. Galleon is the story of that expedition as told by its protagonists, form the germ of the idea in the mind of its promoter, Ignacio Fernandez Vial, to their arrival in port. Produced in an original format which mixes docu-reality with historical documentary, we experience the journey that changed the lives of the crew first-hand. We'll learn how the galleon replica was planned and built combining the same crafts proper to the 17th century and modern systems and techniques, and we'll find out how and why this type of vessel dominated the Pacific Ocean for three hundred years and changed the history of the world.
