Synopsis:

Hunting whales is a matter of life or death for the residents of St. Lawrence, a tiny island in the Bering Sea. So, when Chris Agra Apassingok becomes the youngest person to ever harpoon a whale for his Alaskan village, his mother proudly shares the news on Facebook. To her surprise, thousands of keyboard activists brutally attack Chris without fully understanding the scope of his accomplishment.

 

ONE WITH THE WHALE is a thrilling yet heartwarming story of one family’s struggle to rebuild their shattered identities and find a way to live with Ancient Indigenous values in the fast-paced, cruel modern world.

ADDITIONAL COMMENTS ON "ONE WITH THE WHALE"

April 16, 2024
THERE IS ONE ADDITIONAL POINT I WOULD LIKE TO MAKE. IT'S IN REFERENCE TO A STATEMENT THAT A GENTLEMAN IN THE FILM MADE ABOUT HOW THEIR ISLAND- ST. LAWRENCE- IS ONLY 37 MILES FROM RUSSIA. I REMEMBER HOW SARAH PALIN WAS RIDICULED SO MUCH FOR SAYING "YOU CAN SEE RUSSIA FROM LAND IN ALASKA. IN FACT, TINA FEY FALSELY ACCUSED HER OF SAYING "I CAN SEE RUSSIA FROM MY BACKYARD" & BILL MAHER CALLED HER THE "C" WORD & CALLED HER MENTALLY CHALLENGED SON A "RETARD" & WHITNEY CUMMINGS CALLED HIM "THE RETARDED THING THAT CAME OUT OF SARAH PALIN'S VAGINA." I THINK THAT THIS GENTLEMAN'S STATEMENT ABOUT ALASKA'S PROXIMITY TO RUSSIA PROVES THAT FEY IS THE STUPID ONE & MAHER & CUMMINGS ARE AS SOCIPATHIC AS DAVID DUKE, LOUIS FARRAKKHAN, & FRED PHELPS.

VITAL DOCUMENNTARY W A FEW UNANSWEWERED QUESTIONS

April 16, 2024
EVERYONE NEEDS TO SEE THIS DOCUMENTARY BECAUSE IT MAKES US SEE HOW INUIT PEOPLE ARE SUFFERIN G- PARTLY DUE TO CLIMATE CHANGE & PARTLY DUE TO THE HARASSMENT FROM A RICH RACIST "ENVIRONMENTALIST" NAMED PAUL WATSON WHO HAS CALLED THE INUITS "MURDEROUS DESPICABLE BASTARDS" & WHOSE FOLLOWERS HAVE CALLED FOR THE DEATHS OF THE INUITS DUE TO THEIR PRACTICE OF HUNTING WHALES. BUT, ALTHOUGH I REALIZE THAT THE INUITS ONLY HUNT WHALES FOR SURVIVAL, THERE IS SOMETHING TROUBLING ABOUT IT- ESPECIALLY WHEN THEY GET E XCITED ABOUT SEEING THE WHALES THEY ARE ABOUT TO KILL. I WISH THAT THE OWNERS OF SOME MEAT PROCESSING PLANTS WOULD DONATE FOOD TO THESE COMMUNITIES SO THAT THEY WOULDN'T HAVE TO RESORT TO KILLING WHALES. I REALIZE THAT THE COWS THAT ARE KILLED IN SLAUGHTERHOUSES ALSO SUFFER, BUT THERE ARE WAYS OF KILLING COWS QUICKLY IN ORDER TO KEEP THEM FROM SUFFERING TOO MUCH. THE WHALES WHO ARE KILLED IN WHALE HUNTS DIE VERY SLOWLY, SO THERE IS NO WAY TO DECREASE THEIR SUFFERING.
