The Islands and the Whales (2017, UK, Mike Day, 81 minutes, content advisory)
The pilot whale hunters of the Faroe Islands believe that hunting is vital to their way of life, but when a local professor makes a grim discovery about the effects of marine pollution, and the seabirds populations collapse, environmental changes threaten to change the community and their way of life forever. The Faroese are among the first to feel the effects of our ever more polluted oceans; what once secured their survival now endangers their children and the Faroe Islanders must make a choice between health and tradition.
The film will be shown in the Blue Building
