"Search for the Jefferson Davis" Documentary to Debut on National Archaeology Day at the Orlando Film Festival

Posted by: Chuck Meide in In the News, LAMP Events, LAMPosts


On Monday there was a great story in the St. Augustine Record announcing the debut of our documentary "The Search for the Jefferson Davis" at this year's Orlando Film Festival, which will be held on October 19-23. The documentary, produced by Pepe Productions whose director and crew came and filmed our archaeological team in June 2009, is an exciting glimpse into what goes into an archaeological search for a historic shipwreck of national significance. You can read more about the Jefferson Davis, and our ongoing search for her (the most successful privateer of the Civil War), here, here, here, here, here, here, and here.

The debut screening will coincide with National Archaeology Day, celebrated in both the U.S. and Canada.

We are really proud of the documentary and looking forward to its first public viewing. For those interested in seeing it at the Festival, the documentary will be shown at 2:10 p.m. Oct. 22 in Theatre 12 at Cinema City, Orlando, Florida.
