The VANIKORO MYSTERY - 2001 / 52’

In 1785, Louis XVI entrusts Captain La Pérouse with the greatest round-the-world exploration expedition. Aboard two ships, the Boussole and the Astrolabe, sailors, officers and scholars are set to travel the oceans, at all latitudes and in all weather. In 1788, the navigator and his two hundred and twenty crew are shipwrecked in the South Pacific. The "La Pérouse mystery" begins... Over the past twenty five years, seven research expeditions have been carried out by the Association Salomon to shed light on the fate of this celebrated expedition.
