Nantucket Premiere of Ric Burns’ “Into the Deep: America, Whaling & the World”

The Red Carpet Premiere of Ric Burns’s “Into the Deep: America, Whaling & the World” took place on Monday, May 10, 2010 at the Whaling Museum. The film was presented by the NHA in cooperation with WGBH and Steeplechase Films, and is both a fantastic sea adventure and a mythic saga of man and nature in the harrowing tale of the wreck of the whaleship Essex. A number of artifacts from the NHA collection were used in the filming of the movie, and they will be on display for this event. Portions of the film were shot in the Whaling Museum’s Discovery Room, and the NHA worked closely with Ric Burns during initial research and documentation. NHA staff will answer questions prior to the screening. Photos by Gene Mahon. Click on any photo to see more photos from this event or an archive of past events.
