The Wind that Blows

The Wind that Blows

FOR WELL OVER a hundred years, men of the tiny island of Bequia in the Grenadines have engaged in a dangerous, and (now) controversial activity: the hunting of humpback whales. Spanning a generation, this revealing and compelling film gently examines this group of men whose lives are indelibly entwined with nature. Amidst the clamour of modernisation, the steadfast voices of a people reverberate as they cling to a proud past.
