Editorial Reviews

Product Description

whaledreamers - the title alone evokes hypnotic visions of these most magnificent and ancient creatures. This visually stunning film
offers an incredible glimpse into a rarely seen and scarcely understood
tribal culture whose entire story of creation revolves around whales and has endured for centuries. The film passionately explores the connection between the subtle elegance of these mothers of the sea and ancient civilizations around the world whose culture and very existence is based on whales.

Intertwining incredible underwater footage with ancient legend,
whaledreamers examines the complex past and the possibly dire future of human civilization.

Told with moving optimism and spiritual strength, it is a clarion call
encouraging humanity s reconnection to the profound beauty of the natural
world and is an appeal to embrace all living beings thereby creating the
unity and peace which the Earth itself can bring.

Although in limited theaterical release, I actually had the opportunity to see this visually stunning film in the theater; and what a wonderful experience that was! If you find it playing near you, you should definitely make an effort to go see it that way as well as buy the DVD, as I did.

This is a wonderful film that not only has beautiful photography of whales, dophins & the natural world...it also takes us on a journey thru the past & present lives of the different aboriginal tribes around the world, specifically the Mirning tribe (whale dreaming tribe) of Australia.

Representatives from different tribes from around the world with different cultures & beliefs came together to meet in Australia for "The Gathering". At first, finding common ground was difficult...but as the days passed, they discovered that they have quite a bit in common as far as some of their struggles & beliefs. By the end of the movie they feel they are all brothers & sisters & you leave the movie with a feeling of hope. That it is possible for people to come together as one to change things for the better.

Julian Lennon narrates & appears in the movie as well. His remix of "Saltwater", which is heard in length at the end of the film, just adds to this feeling of hope.

Bonus Features on the DVD include the original opening of the film, a new video for "Saltwater" & a great interview with Julian, himself.

I highly recommend this film for those who care about this beautiful world we live on & would like to see people come together in peace & unity to save it.

The whales are here to warn us to change our ways or lose our planet home.
Elders have gathered to remind us of our real commitment to Mother Earth
Lennon's music is hauntingly beautiful throughout the DVD and adds to the emotional complexity of the subject. The whale song drives deep into our soul consciousness and made this viewer rekindle an intimate remembrance with these ancient "gatekeepers."

We all seem to be starting to understand that we are connected. This film explores the connectedness of one of the Worlds oldest people with the Whales and through words from elders from around the globe describe the plight of these tribes, the plight of the Whales and the plight of the Planet and how the loss of any could become the loss of all.

This isn't a documentary where you just sit back and get informed, although there certainly is important information here.

But what Julian Lennon and Kim Kindersley have produced is something much more visceral and meaningful than your average documentary. This film is to be not just watched but experienced. It calls for you to engage not just your ears, not just your mind, but your heart; it asks you to connect to the tribes, to the whales, and to the Earth, and with that, "Whaledreamers" will help you to be the change you want to see in the world.

It is about an ancient tribe whose creation myth is based on the whale. It is about other tribes coming together to share this dream. It is about the human tribe striving to make a difference in this world.

The documentary is very well made, the soundtrack is beautiful and the message is urgent.

Watch it!

Sorry to disagree with all the other reviewers, because of whose glowing reviews I went to see this movie, but I think it's a piece of shlock.

Let me just say right now that I am entirely on the side of world peace, spirituality, saving the whales, saving the few pristine places left on earth, and preserving cultural heritage.

But I hated this movie and only sat through it due to politeness, although it turns out that the discussion afterward, which I was dreading (since I had nothing good to say about the movie), was actually very good and made the whole evening worthwhile. I really don't have a problem with somebody else loving this movie, I just want to give the other side.

I found this movie bombastic, preachy, melodramatic, and pompous, yet another episode of Western white boys pursuing their dreams that always seem to involve adopting some obscure aboriginal version of spirituality. In my old age I am more sensitive to the absence of women in popular culture. This movie appears to have tried hard to include women but all the "doers" and lead characters and narrators are men.

The music first put me to sleep and then got on my nerves, though parts of it were nice and might have been enjoyable in small doses.

I was offended by the representation of the death of the Western interpreter Terry Freitas (may he rest in peace, my comments are about the movie, not Terry's life, work, or death). It was mentioned that he was killed along with "two aboriginal colleagues" who we hear no more about, although we are shown memorial services for Terry all over the world and even an interview with his mother.

A rare example, when human synchronicity perseveres above obstacles and achieves excellence....art imitates intentional Deity creation....a deep breather when feeling the unified five digits forming the hand; Director, Kim Kindersley's vision, worldwise elders' insight, the ethereal whale presence, Julian Lennon's Saltwater music and lyrics...and....the healing broken pinky of human destructiveness....

Definitely, a repeat watch.....Grand stand show!!
