On the 60th anniversary of the tragedy of the Andrea Doria, we are proud to present the docufilm Andrea Doria: Are the Passengers Saved? The film, written and produced by Pierette Domenica Simpson, uses vivid dramatizations of Pierette’s immigration, her nightmare on the Atlantic, and her arrival in the New World. Accompanied by interviews with maritime experts, survivors, and divers, along with astounding archival footage, the film will reveal the research published in her two books: Alive on the Andrea Doria! The Greatest Sea Rescue in History, and I Was Shipwrecked on the Andrea Doria! The Titanic of the 1950s. With the participation of Pierette Domenica Simpson and movie director Luca Guardabascio.
