The Whale and the Raven

#1  Postby Rachel Bronwyn » May 13, 2021 7:22 am

Director Mirjam Leuze’s The Whale and the Raven illuminates the many issues that have drawn whale researchers, the Gitga’at First Nation, and the Government of British Columbia into a complex conflict. As the people in the Great Bear Rainforest struggle to protect their territory against the pressure and promise of the gas industry, caught in between are the countless beings that call this place home.

Even if you're not interested in the content, the photography is incredible and in such a beautiful, special part of the world.

The National Film Board of Canada is streaming it for free right now (though I'm not sure it'll work outside Canada.) Check it out here.

Wow thanks for posting. Not available from the Uk but a bit of jiggery-pokery with a vpn fixed that.
