George & The Whales

Director: Nessim Stevenson
Country of Origin: Tonga

A documentary portrait of a Tongan whale-watching guide called George, and of the humpback whales that spend their summers in the warm waters around the islands of Vava’u.

We wanted to make a film that reflects on the content tranquility that a connection with the ocean and some of it’s largest inhabitants can bring. The environment and it’s protection shouldn’t be political.
