RED CEDAR ENTERS DOC WORLD W/WHALE & RAVEN
November 30, 2016
Red Cedar Films has recently signed a co-development agreement with the National Film Board of Canada (NFB) for its first feature-length documentary, The Whale and the Raven, directed by Mirjam Leuze (Flowers of Freedom), to be produced in 2017 as an international co-production between the NFB (Shirley Vercruysse), Red Cedar Films (Henrik Meyer), Off Island Media (Andrew Williamson), and Busse & Halberschmidt Filmproduktion oHG (Marcelo Busse) in Düsseldorf, Germany. ARTE is attached as European broadcaster, and the project has been recently granted funding from Film und Medien Stiftung NRW.
The Whale and the Raven is a story that ripples out from a place between land and sea: a remote island off Canada’s wild coast, inhabited by two whale researchers amongst ravens, wolves, and many whales. It’s a personal story that takes place against the backdrop of a unique natural paradise and addresses a global audience with multiple perspectives, asking the existential question: how do we actually want to live in the future?
