Dir. Mike Day, UK, 2016, 84mins

This beautifully shot documentary carefully dissects the delicate situation unfolding around hunting and fishing traditions on the Faroe Islands.

On the isolated Danish Faroe Islands, animal rights activism, plummeting wildlife populations and rising mercury levels are threatening the long time practices of hunting seabirds and pilot whales of the Faroese.

‘An enveloping look at a community whose centuries-old way of life may be ending.’

Venue: Studio 74, Exeter Phoenix
