The Island and the Whales - Mike Day

Date: 2018-03-29 07:00 PM

Venue: Sabhal Mor Ostaig  |  City: Sleat, Isle of Skye


Small fishing communities of the Faroe Islands, an isolated Nordic archipelago in the North Atlantic, endure an uneasy period of transition as disparate global pressures—including animal rights activism, plummeting wildlife populations and mercury crawling up the ocean food chain—threaten traditional hunting and fishing practices. Graphic hunting scenes in this vivid documentary are interspersed with portraits of irascible community members who are resistant to change, all amid a landscape of eerie, solitary beauty.
The film was funded by Creative Scotland and comes from the same house as ‘The Bridge Rising’ about the Skye Bridge that we presented in 2016.

Takes place in the Sabhal Mòr Ostaig TDC main hall on Thursday, 29 March at 7pm.

The film is followed at 8.30pm by a live Q and A session from Picturehouse Central in London with Channel 4's Jon Snow, director Mike Day and special guests from across the environmental community.

Bring your mobile phone to contribute to the conversation.

Presented in conjunction with Sleat Community Trust Environmental Group.

Reserve your seat – Adults (+ Members and Seasons) £8, Students and Young People £6
