In anticipation of the 200th anniversary of the birth of Herman Melville this August, a special opportunity to view the acclaimed film by award-winning director Adam Low for the flagship BBC arts programme Arena.
Philip Hoare, winner of the 2009 Samuel Johnson Prize for Non-Fiction for his magnificent Leviathan, embarks on a four-year adventure in search of the whale. Filmed in Britain, New England and the Azores, The Hunt for Moby-Dick explores our perennial fascination with this remarkable animal, and the book it inspired.
The evening will be hosted by Gareth Evans.
