The great John Huston’s (The Maltese Falcon, Wise Blood, The Dead) classic film adaptation of Herman Melville’s novel Moby Dick is, like all of Huston’s work, truly one of a kind. Set in the 19th century New England, the film follows the sole survivor of the lost whaling ship Pequod and its captain, Ahab’s (Gregory Peck) self-destructive obsession to hunt the great white whale, Moby Dick. This screening is presented in conjunction with the exhibition, Alex Katz/Moby Dick, on view at the Colby College Museum of Art through March 1, 2020. The film will be introduced by the Colby College Museum of Art Anne Lunder Leland Curatorial Fellow, Olivia Fountain.

This screening is free and open to the public. Unrated. 116 Min.
