Followed by a discussion with the film’s producer Stephen Hopkins Descendent Andrew Giles Buckley.
We will be joined by two-time Emmy-nominated producer Andrew Giles Buckley who will present his ninety-minute documentary. The film traces the footsteps of colorful Stephen Hopkins who was tried for treason on the island of Bermuda, lived in Jamestown, boarded the Mayflower, settled in Plymouth, and was later immortalized by Shakespeare as the drunken Stephano in his final play, the Tempest. The film was shot on location and follows Hopkins’ life as he crisscrossed the Atlantic and came in contact with such personalities as Pocahontas and Squanto.
