The Islands and the Whales

(Denmark, United Kingdom ) 2016 | 81 minutes | Mike Day | Faorese, Danish with English subtitles

In the remote Faroe Islands, inhabitants have hunted seabirds and pilot whales for millennia. Soaring aerial cinematography shows an isolated community, historically dependent upon and devoted to nature, losing connection with the natural world. Native sea birds are disappearing and a local doctor discovers something horrifying: the whales, being at the top of the ocean's food chain, are packed with toxins. The Islands and the Whales takes a stimulating sideways approach to a complex debate involving health, identity, community, and human and animal welfare issues.

"A cautionary tale of endless beauty and limited resources." –Megan Scanlon, New York;
