A remote island in the Pacific, populated by ravens and two whale researchers. A small town with the promise of a second industrial boom. And 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 oil and gas industry? And what voice do whales have in the debate when the sound of tanker engines might drive them away?
Filled with stunning footage, a soundscape composed of recordings of the natural world and animated storytelling, THE WHALE AND THE RAVEN is a portrait of a remarkable marine ecosystem. Beneath this wealth of beauty lies something even deeper: a reminder that our shared world requires care, vigilance, and fierce compassion if it is to continue to exist.
