History Film Forum 2015 - In the Heart of the Sea Intro
Description:
Ron Howard's film, In the Heart of the Sea, is based on Nathaniel Philbrick's National Book Award winning work about the tragic story of the New England whaling ship Essex. Before the film, NMAH Maritime History Curator Paul F. Johnston interviewed Philbrick about the history of the Essex, how Herman Melville drew inspiration from the story for his Moby Dick, and how Hollywood's interpretation differed from the reality. 230 people turned out to see In the Heart of the Sea at the History Film Forum before it hit theaters nationwide on December 11.
