A Taste of Whale

The fjord’s water, surrounded by stunning green mountains, is turning blood red. It is the “Grind” season again – Faroe Islanders’ ritual slaughter of pilot whales. Two proud Faroese whalers are on one side, two young and passionate Sea Shepherd activists on the other. A Taste of Whale invites you to see past preconceived positions and question what meat-eating is truly about.

“Well-crafted. Raises wider questions regarding humanity’s sometimes-hypocritical ethics toward what we eat, where we get it, and how.”


“Tackles its subject in a meaty, thought-provoking and remarkably balanced way.”
