February 2021 Club Meeting

Coming Home

What started as a liveaboard dive trip to the Red Sea, off the coast of Sudan, in 2014 became a 5-year quest to tell the story of the Macallé, and the one sailor who didn’t make it home. First, to find the WWII Italian submarine that went down in June 1940 off the coast of Africa, and then, to return to Italy the remains of a young sailor who had died in the wreck and been buried on a desert island. Rick Preve became progressively more involved in this project called “Coming Home”, which eventually resulted in the production of an award-winning feature documentary by the same title.

Join us as local filmmaker, Rick Preve, shares some behind-the-scenes moments about how the project came into being, how it was carried out, and how it concluded.
