Storyline

Saving Luna is a feature-length documentary about Luna, a lone baby killer whale who gets separated from his family in a remote Vancouver Island fjord. When Luna seeks companionship from people, he breaks a fundamental barrier built of mutual fear and ignorance that normally exists between humans and wild beings. This shattering of convention leads to joy, confusion and anger. In a magnificent landscape, different groups of people fight over their wildly differing views of who Luna is, and what we need to do to save him. To natives he's the spirit of a chief. To boaters he's a goofy friend. To conservationists he's a cause. To scientists he's trouble. To officials he's a danger. To the filmmakers, Suzanne Chisholm and Michael Parfit, he's a lone, lovable street kid whale. Eventually, as more and more people advocate Luna's death, Michael and Suzanne become intricately involved in the efforts to protect him. They believe he can be protected if he is simply given the friendship he seeks... Written by Anonymous

Truly wonderful, captivating movie.
14 February 2009 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I just came back from seeing this movie in Toronto. I have to say, almost the entire audience was visibly moved. And audibly! Throughout the movie were giggles, sighs, gasps, awwws, oooohs, tongue-clicks of shock and disbelief. Everything.

The movie was beautifully shot, beautifully narrated, well-balanced, well-told. I am going to go see it again tomorrow. I would recommend it to anyone, quite honestly. It defies categorization; it is for no single 'type' of viewer.

This was truly the most wonderful and indescribable and uncategorizable movie I have seen in a long time.
