Ocean Voyagers
Ocean Voyagers 1 x 60' or 1 x 70'
An ancient species and one of the largest animals ever to live on planet earth, humpback whales have been traveling – and singing – through the world’s oceans for millions of years. Like the oceans themselves, we know surprisingly little of humpback’s lives. This film is a startlingly intimate portrait of humpback life through the eyes of a mother whale as she teaches her baby all he will need to know to survive in the ocean.

We follow the calf, playing near the seabed floor while his mother rests; catch a glimpse of milk dispersing into the water around him as he nurses; enjoy the interaction between mother and infant as she embraces her baby in her gigantic flippers. These remarkable moments have simply never been filmed before.

Ocean Voyagers is enriched with the music of humpbacks themselves. Using a set of specially designed hydrophones, Feodor Pitcairn captured stereo recordings of his humpback subjects: one of nature’s most complex and beautiful songs.
