The Pilgrims

2-hour documentary (2018/2020)

Directed by Ric Burns, this 2-hour documentary, explores the forces, circumstances, personalities and events that converged to exile the English group in Holland and eventually propel their crossing to the New World. It is a story universally familiar in broad outline, but almost entirely unfamiliar to a general audience in its rich and compelling historical actuality. A co-production of Steeplechase Films and WETA in association with BBC and CTVC.

"This is the only Thanksgiving documentary actually worth a damn. Cold, brutal and, yeah, a little hopeful, 'The Pilgrims' is plenty to chew on."
