A Taste of Whale
Every year, hundreds of pilot whales are hunted in the fjords of the Faroe Islands. It’s locally known as the “Grind”, a spectacular and bloody tradition. International activists would like to put an end to it, so that these mammals will stop suffering. But the Faroese whalers denounce the hypocrisy of those who eat meat without looking at what is happening in slaughterhouses and at the industries polluting our planet.
Using beautiful, haunting, and rare footage, "A Taste of Whale" relies on the specific circumstances of the Faroe Islands to reflect on a significant, global issue of our time. In presenting the perspectives of whalers and activists through four relatable and passionate characters the film invites the audience to bear witness to the “Grind” and to confront a practice too often taken for granted.
