Over the last year, we’ve reported on the new documentary ‘The Whale,’ a film by Michael Parfit and Suzanne Chisholm, and narrated by Ryan Reynolds. We’ve told you about the movie, and even interviewed the directors. Now, for those in NY, it’s time for you to see the film. It’s playing at Cinema Village. Get your tickets here.
‘The Whale’ follows a baby orca named Luna who was separated from his pod, and in his loneliness, sought the friendship of humans in Nootka Sound. It explores the complexity of human/animal relationships and wildlife management. It shows our ineptitude at understanding the needs of other species. It also shows love. Love given by Luna and love given to Luna from her human friends.
If you want to be inspired this weekend, go see this movie. As an added bonus, the dedicated filmmakers behind ‘The Whale’ will be at the Friday screening for a Q&A.
