Movie Info

"Whaledreamers"--the title alone conjures up hypnotic visions of these most magnificent and ancient creatures. This visually stunning film offers an incredible glimpse into a rarely seen and scarcely understood tribal culture whose entire story of creation revolves around whales and has endured for centuries. The film passionately explores the connection between the subtle elegance of these "mothers of the sea" and ancient civilizations around the world whose culture and very existence is based on whales. Intertwining incredible underwater footage with ancient legend, "Whaledreamers" examines the complex past and the possibly dire future of human civilization. Told with moving optimism and spiritual strength, it is a clarion call encouraging humanity's reconnection to the profound beauty of the natural world and is an appeal to embrace all living beings thereby creating the unity and peace which the Earth itself can bring.

  • The September 11 segment is one of the clumsiest works of montage you're likely to see.

  • Whaledreamers is clearly a labor of love and a call to action, but it's undermined by the sheer volume of topics it tackles in addition to the main subject.

  • Scattershot, often beautiful to look at and just as often earnest to the point of self-parody.

  • There's maybe an excess of hugging in the film, but that doesn't really detract from what are some quite amazing and moving moments.

  • Made with the passion of the committed and the sincerity of the believer, Whaledreamers is both an ecological and a spiritual film, urging us to consider the upside of harmony and the downside of ignorance

  • A thought provoking film that touches on issues of climate change as well as the killing of whales and includes compelling images of the great mammals themselves as they respond to the calling
