The world premiere THE WHALE AND THE RAVEN takes us to the vastness of Canada for the festive opening of the 34th DOK.fest München - and connects us with our origins. The film team is our guest. With reception afterwards.
THE WHALE AND THE RAVEN
The remaining residents of the First Nation settlement on Canada’s rough east coast have a profound relationship with nature, in particular whales. Two researchers, Janie Wray and Hermann Meuter, share the spirituality of the indigenous people. A moving filmic message from whales to humans.
