The Faroe Islands are rugged and forbidding. It’s a harsh, remote landscape surrounded by hundreds of miles of rough seas. However, the world is closing in. The Faroese, hardy descendants of Norse settlers, have eked out a living on these islands for over 1300 years. However, climate change and mercury contamination pose threats to their environment and the safety of traditional foods upon which many still rely. Director Mike Day takes us up and over the vertiginous landscape of the Faroes in a spectacular use of aerial cinematography. Coupled with sensitive portraits of Island residents grappling with change, The Islands and the Whales deftly explores how even the remotest places on the planet are affected by global pollution.
