Poseidon: Britain's Lost Submarine in China, a documentary movie by Steven Schwankert.
The Poseidon Project is a 2013 documentary film about the search for the lost Royal Navy submarine HMS Poseidon. On 9 June 1931, HMS Poseidon, one of the Royal Navy's state-of-the-art submarines, was conducting routine drills near a leased British navy base off the coast of Shandong province when it collided with a Chinese cargo ship, tearing a hole in its starboard side.
American author and scuba diver Steven Schwankert discovered the sunken submarine's forgotten history, and wrote its final, previously unknown chapter. Schwankert's work and the history of the submarine and its crew are featured in the documentary, The Poseidon Project, directed by British brothers Arthur Jones and Luther Jones.
This 90-minute documentary will be screened in our usual private room at Bahrs Landing Restaurant at 7:00pm, followed by a Q&A session with Steven Schwankert.
The room will be open from 6:30pm for coffee and cookies.
