Watch out whalers – Breach is coming!

I’m delighted to say that Breach! – the independent film exposing the cruelty, arrogance and stupidity of Icelandic whaling activities which I blogged about recently – has reached its funding target meaning that it can now be completed and aired in Iceland and hopefully a host of other venues this summer!

I’ve spoken several times with Jonny Zwick, the Los Angeles-based writer, director and film-maker and each time, I’ve been impressed by his commitment to making this film a reality and getting it ‘out there’  to key audiences particularly within Iceland. If his trailer is anything to go by, this film is going to do for Icelandic whaling what Blackfish has done for captivity: damning it from within as well as from outside. Personally, I can’t wait to see the finished result.  Well done Jonny, for holding true to your vision – I salute your perseverance and hope that your film creates a whole new band of advocates for Icelandic whales.
