Description
"Weaving together natural history and biography, A Life Among Whales is a fascinating exploration of whale biologist and MacArthur fellowship winner, Dr. Roger Payne. For four decades, Payne has advanced the boundaries of science and activism - beginning with his pioneering work on whale songs in the 1970's, to his study of ocean pollution today. With beautiful and haunting imagery, the film forces us to question our stewardship of Earth and our coexistence of some of its most intriguing creatures"--Container.
