Saturday Documentary - The Islands and The Whales

We will screen The Islands and The Whales in the Madison Library auditorium. No registration needed. Drinks and snacks will be provided.

On the isolated North Atlantic archipelago of the Faroe Islands, the longtime hunting practices of the Faroese are threatened by dangerously high mercury levels in the whales, decimated seabird populations, and anti-whaling activists. The Faroe islanders consider themselves a canary in the mine, their tale a warning to the rest of the world. Winner, 2016 DOC NYC Grand Jury Prize.
