THE WHALE AND THE RAVEN

Documentary

Director: Mirjam Leuze

A remote island inhabited by ravens, wolves and two whale researchers. A small town, which is on the drip of the industry. An indigenous village, grinded between protecting their territory and the pressure of creating jobs. How do people in the Canadian Great Bear Rainforest handle the arrival of the gas industry? A multi-perspective view on a social conflict.

In her previous film “Flowers of Freedom”, director and ethnologist Mirjam Leuze attended a group of female kyrgyz activists and became witness of a remarkable development.
