This episode orig­i­nal­ly aired on June 15, 2020: This week the Ter­ra Infor­ma crew dis­cuss the 2019 film, The Whale and the Raven, direct­ed by Ger­man film­mak­er Mir­jam Leuze. In the heart of British Columbi­a’s coastal Great Bear Rain­for­est, whale researchers and Gitga’at Nation com­mu­ni­ty mem­bers share the screen with their non-human kin, orcas and hump­back whales, whose home­wa­ters are also a pro­posed liq­ue­fied nat­ur­al gas tanker route. Ter­ra Inform­ers Eliz­a­beth Dowdell, Cur­tis Blandy, Sky­lar Lip­man, and Andrea Miller dis­cuss resis­tance, the inte­gra­tion of Indige­nous knowl­edge with sci­en­tif­ic knowl­edge and tech­nol­o­gy, respect in our rela­tion­ships with the nat­ur­al world, and the cin­e­mat­ic beau­ty of kelp forests. Watch the film’s trail­er here, and stream the full movie on Ama­zon Prime Video.
