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. Creative nonviolence strategies emerge. This film is a beautiful reminder of our interconnection with all life on the planet, and the opportunities for ogrowing a more respectful and responsible relationship with all living beings. It's recommended for the very young and the rest of us who used to be very young.
The film series is sponsored by Pace e Bene Nonviolence Service, AFSC. Temple Beth Jacob, NH Peace Action, UCC Peace with Justice Advocates, and the Concord UU Church. All films are free and open to the public, with donations requested to keep the film series going. Discussion will follow the film.
