A new documentary has been released showing the struggle between Icelandic whale hunters and the NGOs that are trying to stop whale hunting in Iceland — one of the few nations in the world where the commercial hunt for whales is still allowed.
Today, German filmmaker Marc Pierschel released a new documentary called ‘184’. This film portrays the campaign of Hard To Port, a German non-profit organization that has protested in Iceland before.
This NGO focuses on ending the commercial whale hunt in Iceland, initiated by a spontaneous tourist protest a few years ago against the inhumane killing of these animals.
“There is no way to kill these whales humanely,” animal rights activist Arne Feuerhahn said in a statement to the press. “The same animals that people get to see during a whale watching tour might get killed just a few miles further out on the same day. Our campaign intends to shine a light on the whaling activities and inform Icelanders as well as visitors how much these animals suffer. There is no place for such a cruel act of killing a sentient animal in the 21st century.”
