"SCARS: Politics in the Big Blue" produced by Dr. Karin Hartman and Pieter van der Harst with the Nova Atlantis foundation screens as a world premiere in New York at the 2018 WCFF.
SYNOPSIS: In 1999, a Dutch girl changed her life to study the unknown Risso’s dolphin in the Azores. This film shows what she learnt over 18 years of fieldwork. It contains spectacular underwater and drone shots, unraveling special behavior of these dolphins. It explains how males form stable groups while females with calves form nurseries, and why male politics are crucial for reproduction. Also, it reflects on the impact of whale watching, why commercial swimming with these dolphins should be banned and why this area is important in Europe and should be designated as a Marine Protected Area. This is a compelling personal story about the highs and lows of a life dedicated to studying Risso’s dolphins, with unique insights into their life history, and both endearing and confronting footage of their behavior.
