The Islands and the Whales - On Tour in Arnhem

The Islands and the Whales - On Tour in Arnhem

February 22, 2017

Tonight you can see the On Tour film The Islands and the Whales in Focus Arnhem.

Between Iceland and Scotland lie the beautiful Faroe Islands. The rocky hills are unsuitable for growling crops so the indigenous people have lived on seabirds and whale meat for centuries. Due to pollution of the ocean their traditional way of living is at risk. The fish are contaminated with mercury and the number of seabirds is declining. Also, there is the criticism of outsiders condemning their whaling traditions.

The Islands and the Whales is directed by door Mike Day and has amongst others been nominated for the ‘Best International Documentary Film’ at the Zurich Film Festival.
