EASTLAND: The Shipwreck That Shook America

Eastland includes extremely rare film footage of the disaster's immediate aftermath unearthed from European film libraries as well as historic interviews with passengers who survived the Eastland's horrific sideways tumble into the polluted Chicago River.

State-of-the-art computer graphics demonstrate how the unstable steamer dramatically see-sawed back and forth before rolling over, killing 844, mostly women and children, in a matter of minutes.
