Ok so this may belong to /tv/ if so, sorry

I'm looking for historicaly accurate movies about the discovery of the Americas

It can be about pretty much everything, from the very first travel of Colombus to the western Frontier of the USA, trappers in Canada, the conquistadores...

By historical and accurate I mean either movies depicting actual events or fiction with good reconstitution of the times and places etc

Thanks

Malick's The New World is surprisingly good for accuracy. The Pocahontas/John Smith stuff is all fiction, but most of the rest of the movie is very accurate, especially its depiction of the normal lives of the Jamestown settlers and nearby Native Americans.

Apocalypto od pretty solid if you forget the whole Mel Gibson thing.

The main inaccuracy is that it merged some aspects of Aztecs into Mayas and set the plot in the latest Classic period (Actually during the Maya collapse) , which was long before the Spanish arrived.

Nah you came to the right place

Nothing is ever discussed in /tv/.

OP here I screened your suggestions thank you bumping this at the same time

Every New World movie I've seen takes liberties for the sake of the story.

If you're really interested in this topic, you might enjoy reading Purchas His Pilgrims, aka Hakluytus Posthumous. It contains a bunch of first-hand writings from English explorers.

There were lots of populated Maya cities when the Spanish arrived. They're recorded by the Conquistadors. The Maya Collapse is way overblown.

I haven't seen Black Robe in years, what'd you think, OP?
