The Whale

I’m not up on the latest movies anymore, so this may be old news, but I’d like to strongly recommend watching the movie The Whale. It’s a documentary about a young orca who became separated from his family and became a resident of an area off British Columbia where he sought out human company.

It raises lots of questions with no easy answers about interspecies communication and relationships, and how a lot of mostly well-meaning people can have very different opinions about how to deal with the situation. It has the usual sort of outcome in these situations, with a lot of inspiration, emotion, and frustration along the way.

Finally, a taste of real winter as  we had a day of snow yesterday, and tonight’s predicted temperature is -14.
