“Into the Deep: America, Whaling & the World”

Filmmaker Ric Burns tells the epic story of three centuries of American whaling, and the relationship between American whalers and the magnificent creatures they hunted to help fuel the expansion of the American economy. Few aspects of the American experience have resonated more profoundly with American hopes, fears and dreams than the savagely primal experience of whaling. “Into the Deep” is a fantastic sea adventure, a cautionary economic and environmental tale, and a mythic saga of man and nature.
