Free Screening – POV: THE ISLANDS AND THE WHALES

WTTW partners with POV and the Chicago Public Library for this free screening of The Islands and the Whales. On the isolated North Atlantic archipelago of the Faroe Islands, filmmaker Mike Day shows us that the longtime hunting practices of the Faroese are threatened by dangerously high mercury levels in the whales, decimated seabird populations, and anti-whaling activists.
