One With The Whale: Review

One With The Whale: Review. By Richard Schertzer.

It’s not everyday that you see a teenager take down a giant whale and post the achievement on social media. However, one teen named Chris in an Alaskan island did all of that, but not everyone was happy with what occurred. 

The documentary sees Chris and his family living in St. Lawrence which is along the Bering Sea in Alaska. Chris is a whale hunter along with his family and they need the whale meat as sustenance to survive, which is very disturbing and trifling when people on the internet, who know nothing about the Apassingoks culture, espouse their grief after he and his family take down a giant whale. 

The film is truly and beautifully shot with such a fervor for the craft of documentaries. Working on this “whale” of a project is certainly a herculean task but the filmmakers easily pull it off with the finesse of telling a story respectfully. 

Looking at this film from a poetic and emotional lens, it tells the tale of a family that is just trying to get by and is a little bit anxious about their future. They are just trying to make it and take it day by day which is something that everyone can relate to.

One thing that sticks out about this movie is the fact that it truly understands the themes of family and togetherness and why community is so important. 

All in all, this movie has heart, sentiment and really proves to be a must-watch for all ages.
