Whaledreamers – The Movie
As an advocate for whale protection and conservation around the world, I am really excited about a new movie that opened in theaters on September 26th, called Whaledreamers.
The movie is an uplifting story about indigenous cultures in Australia and their positive relationship with whales. While countries like Japan, Iceland and Norway continue to slaughter whales for food no one wants and science nobody respects, it’s nice to see a story like this to help restore your faith in humanity.
Instead of exploiting whale populations and profiting from their death, these indigenous cultures look for ways to live in harmony with the whales and their surrounding environment. From watching previews, the movie looks to have some beautiful underwater footage that will send chills down your spine.
Julian Lennon produces the movie and he even has a great song in there that will get your toe tapping. Looks like the movie might be in limited release, so check your local theater to see if it’s coming to your town.
In addition to being a cool story to watch, the movie also provided the inspiration for this year's Weekend of Unity & Peace. The fundraising events are intended to increase awareness and advocacy for groups and the important issues the film covers.
