It’s official: Empire is going West! For the next year, we will be following the traces of the Dutch West India Company (GWC) in Brazil, Suriname and Ghana.
The new set of films, entitled Empire: Migrants, will be produced with funding and support from the National Archives of the Netherlands.
So with our four Dutch East India Company films, plus Bakermat, plus the new additions, we’re basically gunning for world domination.
