Movie: The Whale
The Whale is a documentary about an orca that became separated from its pod and adopted the residents of Nootka Sound in British Columbia as much as they did him. Like humans, Orcas are highly social creatures, and Luna, as he was called, was the life of the party. The nuance of his gestures were wondrous, playful, exuberantly extending the fin of friendship, he even helped timber workers in the area, pushing logs through the water with his nose.
The firm explores issues surrounding the emotional lives of animals — and the assumption of humans that they comprehend them — with gorgeous images.
