Director: Mirjam Leuze, Deutschland /Kanada (2019), 106 Min., OmdU
A remote island in the Pacific, populated by wolves, ravens and two whale researchers. A small town with the promise of a second industrial boom. A First Nation village, torn between the wish to protect its territory and the pressure to cope with big investors. How are the people in the Canadian Great Bear Rainforest handling the arrival of the LNG industry? And what voice do whales have in the debate, when just the sound of tanker engines might be enough to drive them away? The Whale and the Raven is a story of humans and non-humans, united bya deep sea, seperated by conflicting plans for its future.
A discussion with Mirjam Leuze (Film Director) will follow the screening. The original version of the film will be shown with German subtitles. The discussion will be held in German.
