Join the Alumni Association for the Montreal premiere of “Saving Luna”. Winner of 19 international film awards, “Saving Luna” is a feature-length documentary about a lone baby killer whale who gets separated from his family in a remote Vancouver Island fjord.
When Luna seeks companionship from people, he breaks a fundamental barrier built of mutual fear and ignorance that normally exists between humans and wild beings. In a magnificent landscape, different groups of people fight over their wildly differing views of who Luna is, and what we need to do to save him. To natives he’s the spirit of a chief. To boaters he’s a goofy friend. To conservationists he’s a cause. To scientists he’s trouble. To officials he’s a danger. The screening will be followed by a teleconferenced Q & A with Director Suzanne Chisholm.
