I love that while on lockdown, with days passing without being able to leave the house, I'm transported to the north coast of British Columbia, Canada. Hearing whale song, and hearing about the amazingly complex situation in the Kitimat Fjord between native people, whales, and fossil fuel industry. Tess provided a great space for Mirjam to talk about this amazing documentary she directed. The use of film clips really brings this episode to life.
