Intro - Raving Iran

Arash and Anoosh dream of carreers as Techno DJ’s, but in Iran this is fairly impossible. So they play at underground parties and try to sell their record without the governments permission. After one of them is arrested, their future dream seems to fade. An invitation to perform at a well-known dance festival in Switzerland opens a door to new possibilities.

Intro Islands and the Whales

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.
