Lamalera

Lamalera is notoriously known for its traditional whale-hunting. This ancient hunting technique, passed down generations, is the main livelihood of the village. The perspectives of four locals are followed; Kris, a 15 year old girl attending the local high school, Karolous, a seasoned harpooner, Ignacious, a respected ship builder, and Sister Maria, a Catholic nun. They each welcome us into their world, exploring their daily lives. The audience will gain an intimate first-hand account of one of the last indigenous whaling-cultures in the world, revealing how all aspects of life in Lamalera is shaped by, and linked to their traditional whale-hunting.
