Shipwrecked is a new 4D immersive theater experience produced by the Bullock Texas State History Museum in conjunction with award-winning production house Cortina Productions. Shipwrecked follows the perilous journey of the French explorer Robert Cavelier, Sieur de La Salle who sailed west to establish a colony at the mouth of the Mississippi River in 1684. Commissioned by King Louis XIV, the expedition could have given the French a stronger presence in North America if successful, but piracy, poor navigation, and murder eventually doomed the expedition. In response, Spain renewed its interest in what would become Texas, changing the course of history. Dramatizing the story of La Salle’s ill-fated venture, the film reveals the personalities and struggles that beset the colony, all through the eyes of one of the few survivors of the expedition, 14-year old Pierre Talon. Premiering in the Bullock Museum's Texas Spirit Theater, Shipwrecked uses 4D effects felt by the audience to create a dynamic film experience. The film opens in conjunction with a new special exhibition, La Belle: The Ship That Changed History, on view at the Bullock Museum through May 17, 2015. The exhibition features the live-action reassembly of La Belle's 300 year-old hull, new media interactives, and rare artifacts excavated from this incredible 17th-century find in Matagorda Bay, Texas, often described as one of the most important shipwreck discoveries in North America.  (All audiences: 21 min.)
