2022 - Trailer AT5: "The drama of the Amsterdams slaven ship Leusden"

At end of 2022, Maritime archaeologists Jerzy Gawronski (CTO Amsterdam) and Michel L'Hours (French archaeological service DRASSM) went on an expedition to find the slave ship Leusden. Previous expeditions via Suriname and French Guiana had shown that the ship has probably stranded near the mouth of the Marowijne river off the coast of the current village Awala-Yalimapo in French Guiana. The drama of the Leusden radically sketches the violent context in which the slave trade took place.

AT5 has made a documentary about the search for and history of slave ship Leusden. Please find the trailer below.
