Why Make a Film?

I think part of the reason this film matters is it may inspire viewers to take time to reacquaint themselves with the wonder of living on this remarkable planet. It’s not all about saving orcas it’s about looking after what matters most in our own lives.

I was recently reading some prose by Leo Tolstoy, one of the greatest authors of all time. I think his words capture my respect and appreciation for the themes Natalie explorers in this work. ~ Todd

‘The goal of the artist is not to solve a question irrefutably, but to force people to love life in all its countless, inexhaustible manifestations. If I were told I could write a novel in which I would set forth the seemingly correct attitudes towards all social questions, I would not devote even two hours of work to such a novel, but if I were told that what I write will be read in twenty years by the children of today and that they will weep and smile over it and will fall in love with life, I would devote all my life and all my strength to it.’ ~ Leo Tolstoy
