THE WHALE AND THE RAVEN

Deutschland, Kanada 2019 – Director: Mirjam Leuze – Original language: english

  • THE WHALE AND THE RAVEN

The remaining residents of the First Nation settlement on Canada’s rough west 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.

We present the world premiere of the film at DOK.fest München 2019.
