Franklin Project

Written and Directed by Nyla Innuksuk and Barbara Okpik

Produced by In partnership with Parks Canada, Niki Little

In 1845, Sir John Franklin and his men set out to “penetrate the icy fastness of the north, and to circumnavigate America.” And then they disappeared. The truth about what happened to Franklin’s ill-fated Arctic expedition was shrouded in mystery for more than a century and a half – until 2014 when the wreck of the Erebus was discovered. Two years later, the Terror was discovered.
