Manhattan 1609


Some four centuries ago, Protestants from Belgium and the North of France, chased from their region by war and religion, left to build a new life in the New World. Upon their arrival, they purchased virgin lands from the Indians and started building a settlement, never imagining that one day it would become the most famous city in the world: New York.

Made in HD, this film is about the pre-history of New York. It is also about Europe of the 17th century, ravaged by a terrible war of religion. The story of men and women, fleeing an intolerant Old Continent, abandoning their trades, their families, and the vast majority of their goods, to find refuge in a savage land in order to live freely and in peace.
