The Islands and the Whales

Green on Screen
(NR) UK/Denmark – 1 hr 24 min
2016 · d. Mike Day   Official Site Reviews

In the mist-shrouded Faroe Archipelago, islanders rely on pilot whales, slain during gruesome hunts, as a sustainable food source. Facing animal rights groups and rising mercury levels in the whales, the community finds itself at the crux of tradition and modernity. Footage in this film may be upsetting to some viewers.

Lisa J. Rodrigues, Ph.D., Associate Professor, Villanova University, will lead the post-film discussion.
