Globally known for its high-profile in-house production of original Cinema and Entertainment documentaries, Paris based producer and distributor PRIME Entertainment GROUP is proud to announce a new acquisition deal with a Spanish production house Zona Mixta to diversify its catalog of premium documentaries.

The Master of Submarines reveals the biography of German commander of French origin, who holds the record for sinking 194 ships while in charge of a U-35 submarine. He was the most successful naval officer of the German army during WWI. No one in naval history had similar performance. Adolf Hitler recruited him for the Third Reich before World War II and when he was just about to receive his appointment as admiral in 1941, his plane crashed, curiously near Paris.

The Graveyard of Truk Lagoon explores the grim and lost history of the Japanese naval base, Truk Atol. Once located in The Pacific Ocean, now one of the largest shipwrecks that home 6000 watery graves after the US Navy’s Operation Hailstone.
