We are still overwhelmed by the great response to our special screening of the documentary WHALE LIKE ME in early October. The demand for tickets was tremendous and in no time the event was fully booked by more than 250 visitors. We really wanted to give the many interested people who did not make it to the first special screening another opportunity to see this touching documentary. Therefore we are happy to announce that SHIFTING VALUES and OceanCare will host another screening of the documentary WHALE LIKE ME in Vienna.
When: Thursday, 24th January 2019, 18:30 admission, 19:00 screening
Where: Cine Center, Fleischmarkt 6, 1010 Wien
Once again, we are happy to have filmmaker Malcolm Wright and producer Leah Lemieux at the cinema. They will also take part in the discussion after the film.
Personal registration required: firstname.lastname@example.org. Admission free. Number of participants limited. Film and discussion in English.
About the film:
Who are the people who eat whales and dolphins? How much do we actually know about the life of whalers, and how much do they know about the life of whales? Is there a simple good or bad, right or wrong, or is there another story to tell?
Malcolm Wright, film producer, starts out for a journey of discovery. His decade-long journey across continents and cultures leads Malcolm beneath the surface of our relationship with whales, and with each other. He develops relationships with five whalers in places as diverse as rural Japan, the eastern Caribbean, and the rugged North Atlantic. His endeavour results in a unique film about respect and vision.
WHALE LIKE ME proves that dialogue has never been more important than today. Different attitudes and interests do not keep people from building a bridge so that they can meet respectfully and find common ground. This bridge is dialogue. It fosters mutual understanding and makes everyone reflect their own attitude at the same time. Malcolm’s exceptional non-confrontational and dialogue-based approach seeks to bring about a paradigm shift in the encrusted whaling debate. However, Malcolm’s way to interact with the whalers can also inspire activists in other fields of animal welfare and nature conservation.
