Moby-Dick was a colossal failure when first published in 1851 but in the
early 20th century it began taking its place among the most highly regarded
works written in the 19th century; today it is seen as one of the best books ever
written. It has inspired plays, other novels and many films in many genres.
This short festival explores only a few of the many versions.

This is the first Moby-Dick Film Festival ever produced, compiled by the Historical Society at
Herman Melville’s Arrowhead and presented with the Friends of the Berkshire
Athenaeum .
