“Hideki and I risk our friendship to see if mutual understanding is possible: between whalers and anti-whalers, and between humans and whales.



Neither ‘side’ has yet dared to film this sort of balanced and open confrontation of worldviews, until today. And watching Whale Like Me is only the beginning: next we help you make its incredible adventure your own, in ways that benefits both humans and whales.”



Malcolm Wright
Whale Like Me, Director




Editor's Note from Ellen Mahoney:  Whale Like Me is a documentary currently in pre-production and its vital mission is to unlock the whaling stalemate and bring about lasting protection for whales. Quiet Heart Film producer Malcolm Wright is producing the documentary. He has worked on visual and special effects for films such as Avatar, The Water Horse and Charlotte's Web, to name just a few. In addition, Malcolm is the grandson of renowned American author Richard Wright (Native SonUncle Tom's ChildrenBlack BoyThe Outsider).


To produce the film, Malcolm will live alongside Japanese whalers for one month to have an up close look at the practice of whaling.  This real life experience, he believes, will help shed light on whaling in the effort to preserve this species and to present solutions for preserving our oceans' mammals.


Funding is needed - and to help raise money for film production Malcolm is running a 250k marathon in Egypt's Valley of the Whales in October, 2011.
