New trailer for gripping EIA film Hunt for the Whalers

With its UK premiere tomorrow night (Thursday, December 15) on Nat Geo Wild at 8pm, we’re pleased to share this new trailer for Hunt for the Whalers.

Made by London production company Red Earth Studio for National Geographic, the documentary follows EIA investigators from Iceland to Japan as they document the hunting of endangered fin whales for export to Japanese consumers, using covert filming and cutting-edge DNA analysis to put the pieces together and expose the key players behind the trade.
