ABOUT THE FILM

Last Whaling Station is a feature length artistic documentary in progress that tells the story of the last whaling station in Iceland, and the battle to end the commercial hunting of endangered fin whales.  The documentary is a personal film that tells the story of the dramatic successful effort to stop whaling, which prevented the killing of at least 125 endangered fin whales in the summer 2023.  Great whales are critical to our survival.  They are keystone species in the ocean, helping fertilize the growth of phytoplankton, which in turn sequesters carbon and provides oxygen.  They are so important in the battle against climate change.  The climate crisis itself is in large part a result of a patriarchal world system that has treated nature as a commodity while subjugating the planet.  Even the last whaler of Iceland is killing mostly female whales, many of whom are pregnant.  Our artistic approach puts a strong emphasis on the social, psychological and philosophical concepts that we all need to comes to terms with if we are to find common solutions to the loss of biodiversity and our relationship to nature.

ABOUT US

We, as co-directors, met in the Arctic in 2021 while working on two different creative projects tackling the same issue. We quickly found the importance in the difference of our perspectives. The combination of east and west, masculine and feminine, art and activism and so on.  We began work on a series of films about the climate crisis.  The Last Whaling Station is about ending the commercial hunting of whales in Iceland.
