The Hawaiian Islands Humpback Whale National Marine Sanctuary held a “Get Into Your Sanctuary Day” special showing of a new award winning movie “Humpback Whales” produced by the award-winning documentary filmmakers MacGillivray Freeman Films.
Humpback Whales incorporates the best that IMAX films have to offer – impossible photography, entertaining music and an instructional narrative that, when combined, creates a positive visceral experience. The musical score is brilliantly constructed to create an emotional connection between viewers and the whales. The song “Best Day of My Life” paired with pristine video footage of effortless swimming, lunging and breaching invokes a jubilant mood. The haunting, yet mesmerizing songs of the humpback whales are also highlighted. Narrated by Ewan McGregor, this documentary is educating, motivating and inspiring.
