About the Film:

Directed by Stephani Gordon. USA. 2013. 29 min.

 In 2008, a shipwreck was found in the Papahānaumokuākea Marine National Monument in the Northwestern Hawaiian Islands.  This documentary examines the discovery of what turned out to be the Nantucket whaler Two Brothers. The whaleship had been captained by George Pollard, Jr., who earlier had commanded the ill-fated Essex—which inspired Moby Dick. Members of the discovery team, as well as director Stephani Gordon, will be at the screening—don’t miss the chance to ask them questions! $15 | $12 MM
