Titanic 2016 Dramaturgy



This is a brief interview with Kate Gilnagh, a third class passenger whose experiences were used for the characters of Kates 1, 2, and 3.

Actual newsreel video recorded in 1911-1912 showing the Titanic tragedy. Note that there is no actual video footage of Titanic known to exist. Pathé and other newsreel organizations were not above substituing film footage of Titanic's sister ship, Olympic, for dramatic purposes.


Interviews with survivors, including Edith Russsell, who went back to her cabin for a lucky pig-shaped music box, leaving all of her valuables behind.



Interviews with Titanic survivors, interspersed with footage from the 1997 film.

The 1958 film A Night To Remember on YouTube.
