The Island and the Whales
Thursday 21st February 2019
80 minutes. Subtitled
A Documentary Film filmed in the Faroe Islands
On the one side, those who live there, hunting fish, seabirds and whales, as they have done for centuries. The rocky islands will not support crops. So we see the work of the islanders to obtain the food necessary for life.
On the other side, the international anti-whaling groups, and the flooding of the food chain by mercury which can poison the Islanders.
