The Pilgrims

Thursday, November 20 • 7 p.m.
Presented by Ric Burns

Ric Burns is one of America’s preeminent documentary filmmakers. He is perhaps best known for his eight-part series, New York: A Documentary Film, which premiered on PBS in 1999. He was a producer and co-writer with his brother Ken on the classic PBS series The Civil War. His 2006 and 2007 films, Eugene O’Neill and Andy Warhol were Emmy winners. In 2012, he released Death and the Civil War to great critical acclaim.

Burns’ newest documentary project, The Pilgrims, is a part of PBS’ renowned series American Experience. Premiering on November 25. It explores the reasons why, despite great personal risk, a group of English men and women chose to cross the Atlantic to settle in America in 1620.
