Bloody Tradition – Agree to Disagree
September 12, 2021: The day 1500 white sided dolphins were slaughtered in Skálabotnur. The fjord in the Faroe Islands turned red and many people from abroad were furious: this slaughter must stop!
During the Grindadráp, normally pilot whales are driven to the coast by boats to be slaughtered for their meat. The last grind was a controversial one, which led to a national discussion. With the main question: Is it still worth it?
In the film Bloody Tradition – Agree to Disagree you get a unique insight into the life of the islanders. For example, we followed a father and son who argued their whole life about this topic and still have different opinions. We brought the pro-grinders and anti-grinders together and let them (an animal right activist from Sea Shepherd and a pro-grinder) discuss the topic in a respectful way.
