Chris Marker - Vive la baleine AKA Three Cheers for the Whale (1972)
This is a documentary film by Chris Marker. It employs Marker's standard rostrum camera technique, filming historic photographs and paintings of whales and the whaling trade. It also contains real-life footage of whaling and harpooning. Marker sides with the hunted mammals in this film and comments negatively on the clinical instrumental relativism of whaling.
