An epic adventure across the vast and dangerous Atlantic Ocean – this is the story of Peter Minuit’s secret mission for the Swedish Empire to plant a new colony in North America. Departing Sweden in 1637, Minuit and his men would sail an ordinary Swedish naval vessel, Kalmar Nyckel, on an extraordinary expedition to the Delaware Valley. Filmed on location and aboard the full-scale replica of Kalmar Nyckel, the documentary sheds new light on a forgotten chapter of America’s colonial history. Co-produced by the Kalmar Nyckel Foundation and Glass Entertainment Group, the film runs roughly 60 minutes and tells this remarkable story. Film trailer and photos
