Production has started on our new production of “The Whale and the Raven”, a feature-length documentary for the National Film Board of Canada and broadcasters ZDF and ARTE in Germany. The Whale and the Raven tells the story of Janie Wray and Hermann Meuter, two extraordinary whale researchers based on the uninhabited Gil Island, on the wild northwest coast of Canada. Supported by the nearby Gitga'at First Nation, they have dedicated their lives to the study and protection of cetaceans. They could never have imagined that a tanker line would threaten not only their life's work but also the ecosystem and wildlife surrounding them. A documentary feature by Mirjam Leuze, The Whale and the Raven shines a much needed light on an an important question: What are we putting at risk just to make money?
