Across The Atlantic DVD
Every immigrant has two lives...
Between 1928 and 1971, 3.8 million people worldwide immigrated to Canada. The majority of European immigrants landed at Pier 21 in Halifax, Nova-Scotia. Among them were many from the Netherlands.
This heartfelt documentary captures the lives, past and present, of millions of Dutch people who gave up everything they knew for the prospect of a new life in Canada. With historic footage and interviews from three generations of immigrants, Across the Atlantic is a powerful and insightful glance into the lives of Dutch immigrants from the 1920s on.
