    A humble community on a tiny Caribbean island clings to its proud past.

    Documentary | Bequia, USA | 2013 | 59 min | English | HD

    SYNOPSIS:

    In the mid-19th century, Yankee sailors taught the men living on Bequia, a small Caribbean island close to St. Vincent how to catch whales – and this tradition has been nurtured and proudly kept alive from generation to generation.  Today, outside pressures – overt and covert – conspire to defeat the stout-hearted Bequia whalers.  This story, about the conservation of whales and the unique identity of a tiny Caribbean island, challenges conventional thought about the impact of global conservation and modernization.
