PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: The Real Story

PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: The Real Story

How much of the film Pirates of the Caribbean is based on reality? Through entertaining reenactments and interviews with historians, one of the film's screenwriters, and weaponry experts, this documentary explains how true pirate adventures inspired the blockbuster franchise. Dismiss students' notions of a back-stabbing, high-living, hard-drinking buccaneer lifestyle; evidence presented shows that amidst the lawless merriment, pirates formed a highly organized society where democracy ruled and voting and health care were instituted a century earlier than in England. Grades 7 and up. English SDH subtitles. Color. Approximately 45 minutes. Blink Films. ©2010.
