Duration: 85 min.

Every year, hundreds of pilot whales are hunted in the fjords of the Faroe Islands. It’s locally known as the “Grind”, a spectacular and bloody tradition. International activists would like to put an end to it, so that these mammals will stop suffering. But the Faroese whalers denounce the hypocrisy of those who eat meat without looking at what is happening in slaughterhouses and at the industries polluting our planet.

Chukotka, on the edge of Siberia, is a severe land where only the strongest survive. One of the oldest Siberian tribes, the Chukchi, has lived there for centuries.

One of the last sources of life and tradition for the Chukchi is whale hunting, whose fate is also threatened.

Returning an oval crab to the sea, patiently waiting for the octopus to reach the desired size, avoiding lobster catch out of season, and promoting generational handover, are some of the messages conveyed by María Maceiras, Merce Silva, and Rogelio Santos Queiruga in their videos. The three well-known communicators from the Ría de Muros and Noia provide a glimpse into their daily lives. A day of work among traps, lines and hooks, a day on platforms like TikTok, Instagram, and Facebook. In short, a day navigating through both physical and digital networks.
