THE ISLANDS AND THE WHALES @ POV broadcast Oct 9

In THE ISLANDS AND THE WHALES (DOC NYC Grand Jury Prize, Hot Docs Emerging International Filmmaker Award), Scottish filmmaker Mike Day lets his camera swoop down on the majestic beauty of the emerald green, rocky North Atlantic Faroe Islands. Its people have survived on whales and seabirds for centuries, but now they face the double threat of their children being exposed to the high levels of mercury found in the whale meat they subsist on and anti-whaling activists imploring – even threatening – them to find alternatives.

THE ISLANDS AND THE WHALES has its national broadcast premiere on the PBS documentary series POV (Point of View) on Monday, October 9, 2017 (check local listings). POV is American television’s longest-running independent documentary series, now in its 30th season.
