Description:
The Islands and the Whales
Directed by Mike Day
Englilsh/Faroe Islands, Kingdom of Denmark/2017, 70 minutes
Learn why threats to the whale-hunting practices of the Faroese are a warning to the world.
Scottish filmmaker Mike Day turns his lens on the isolated North Atlantic archipelago of the Faroe Islands with “The Islands And
The Whales,” which won the DOC NYC Grand Jury Prize and the Hot Docs Emerging International Filmmaker Award in 2016.
The longtime hunting practices of the Faroese are threatened by dangerously high mercury levels in whales, decimated seabird
populations and anti- whaling activists.
Day explores the undeniably timely tensions between the environment, health, tradition and culture.
