A primetime two-hour documentary film by award-winning director Ric Burns, The Pilgrims embraces an extraordinary 70-year arc in the history of Renaissance England and colonial New England, from 1560 to 1630.
The Pilgrims brings to life the story of the men and women of the Mayflower: both the ardently evangelical English Protestants who led the mission, as well as the less fervently evangelical “Strangers” who went with them. With distinct and often riveting personal histories, passionate religious beliefs, and the will to survive even through violent means, this Pilgrims narrative reveals the real history of our nation’s beginnings.
Scott Gray and Sonya Wulff will introduce the film and lead a discussion following the screening.
