Our next film in the "Culture of Peace and Nonviolence" series is the documentary, "The Whale," which is the story of Luna, a young wild killer whale who challenged and befriended a community in a fjord called Nootka Sound in British Columbia. Luna offers the mystery of interspecies tenderness and intelligence, and finds itself at the center of different points of view about his presence. The government officials, scientists, first nation tribal elders, fishermen, fisherwomen and community members find themselves in conflict over the whale's efforts to engage humans.
