22.11.2015 - In the Heart of the Sea is an historical adventure drama thriller film based on Nathaniel Philbrick's 2000 non-fiction book of the same name.  It narrates the sinking of the American whaling ship Essex in 1820, an incident that inspired the tale of Moby Dick, the most famous whale adventure story of all time.

Directed by Ron Howard of A Beautiful Mind and Apollo 13 fame, it describes how the Essex is sunk when it is rammed and split in half by an enraged bull sperm whale and the crew is shipwrecked at sea for 90 days, more than a thousand miles from land.  Many of the key scenes, including action at sea, were filmed in La Gomera in November 2013 and the island authorities, not to mention the many people who were given jobs during the filming, are keenly awaiting the finished product, which is set for worldwide release in early December.
