RED STAR LINE short Trailer from Frederik Nicolai on Vimeo.
Between 1873 and 1934 the Red Star Line transported more than 2.7 million emigrants from Antwerp to New York. The aim of this three-part creative documentary is to use the history of the Red Star Line to tell the story of emigrants who fled the civil war, poverty and persecution and went in search of the American dream. A story of drama, hope and confusion, failure and willpower.
