In 1827 the pirate Spanish slave ship Guerrero sank off the Florida coast while being pursued by a British warship. Through rough weather, cannon fire and deception began a three-year saga involving 561 captive Africans and five nations. Now as expeditions compete to locate the ship’s remains, The Guerrero Project dives headfirst into this lost piece of history and explores why anyone wants to find this ship and what implications it has on us today.
For almost two centuries the engaging stories of those aboard the Guerrero were lost in a few obscure historical pages — until now. This feature-length documentary fuses history with high-seas adventure, modern-day marine expeditions, heated archaeological debate, intense emotions concerning today's race relations, and ultimate hope.
