NYWCFF - Film Series 1: Whales, Seals & Sea Turtles
Thursday, January 31, 2013
Series 1     6:30-8:30 PM
Theme: Whales & Sea Turtles

In the Eye of the Whale
Kate Miller, Producer
20 minutes
* New York Premiere

This is a documentary film exploring the work of photographer, Bryant Austin. In his pursuit to end whaling once and for all, Austin sold everything he owned to follow his dream of creating high-resolution, life-size photographs of endangered whales to exhibit in whaling nations. Austin's journey is inspiring and is creating change.

Where the Whales Sing
Andrew Stevenson, Producer
60 minutes
Country: Bermuda
* New York Premiere
** Appropriate for children
*** Award Winner for Best Children/Family Category

Bermuda is the only mid ocean platform in the Northern hemisphere providing a window into the migratory social behavior of humpback whales. This one-hour film documents new evidence of the humpbacks lives with remarkable close-up underwater footage of humpback whales off the coastal waters of Bermuda, their winter breeding grounds in the Caribbean, and their summer feeding grounds in the Labrador Sea off Eastern Canada.

Lolita the Orca
Producer Daniel Azarian
5 minutes

Lolita is a 22-foot long Orca, living in a 35-foot wide substandard tank at the Miami Seaquarium. Efforts to retire her have so far proved fruitless, as the owner at the facility where she is held captive refuses to giver her up. Lolita has lived at the Miami Seaquarium for over 40 years and the lifespan of an orca can reach 80 years. A number of credible animal rights and scientific organizations would like to see Lolita retired to a coastal sea pen sanctuary in her native Washington State. Perhaps one day she can rejoin her family and see her mother that still swims with the orca pod this very day.

Tortuguero: Epicenter of Sea Turtle Conservation
D. J. Head, Producer & Sea Turtle Conservancy
15 minutes
Country: Costa Rica

Tortuguero takes viewers on an incredible journey through 60 years of sea turtle conservation at the world's oldest sea turtle research facility in Tortuguero Costa Rica. This film explores how a unique partnership among scientists, government and the local community saved the Atlantic Green Sea Turtle from extinction and resulted in a world-class ecotourism destination.
