“”The Six” is a documentary that tells the unknown story of the Chinese passengers on board Titanic. Through the work of the team of researchers – led by historian Steven Schwankert – the central mysteries of their story are tackled: how did they survive the accident at such a high rate and, afterwards, why did they disappear from the history books so completely within 24 hours of arriving in the US? While most of the 700 or so survivors of Titanic were celebrated in their home countries, and to this day are regularly covered in the press on Titanic anniversaries, the Chinese men on Titanic were never interviewed, and never claimed by relatives, making their experience unique. —Arthur Jones”
