Every year, nearly 800 pilot whales are slaughtered on the Faroe Islands despite the protests of animal rights activists. The fjord’s water, surrounded by stunning green mountains, is turning blood red. It is the “Grind” season again – Faroe Islanders’ ritual slaughter of pilot whales. Two proud Faroese whalers are on one side, two young and passionate Sea Shepherd activists on the other. A TASTE OF WHALE invites you to see past preconceived positions and question what meat-eating is truly about.
