On Friday, February 3 at 7:00pm, in conjunction with Fish Creek Winter Festival, Door Community Auditorium (DCA) will present a screening of the documentary “Graveyard of the Great Lakes.” The screening is part of DCA’s “Movies at the Door” series and is free to the public (donations are encouraged).
The Detroit Free Press documentary “Graveyard of the Great Lakes” profiles David Trotter, who has discovered nearly 100 shipwrecks in his 35 years of exploring the Great Lakes. Free Press photographer Eric Seals spent nearly two years documenting the story of the 74-year-old Trotter, Michigan’s maritime history, and people’s fascination with shipwrecks. Each discovery brings tales of lost souls, heroes and survivors.
A photojournalist for the Detroit Free Press, Eric Seals has been recognized for his video storytelling with the 2012 and 2016 Michigan Press Photographer Association’s “Multimedia Photographer of the Year,” a 2016 national Edward R. Murrow and national Webby Award, as well as nine Michigan Emmys. Graveyard of the Great Lakes is his feature documentary debut.
The screening of “Graveyard of the Great Lakes” is sponsored by Al Johnson’s Swedish Restaurant and Butik, Fish Creek Civic Association, and Fish Creek’s 30th Annual Winter Festival.
