NANATUCKET, Ric Burns, 2011 

 A groundbreaking original film showcasing Nantucket's natural beauty and its significant role in global history. Written and produced in his distinctive style by Emmy award-winning filmmaker Ric Burns, Nantucket chronicles the vibrancy of Nantucket's history-from its Native American origins as a Wampanoag outpost through the English settlement and early Quaker culture to its international significance as the whaling capital of the world and eventual transformation to summer resort and art colony.
