Battleship Antarctica

Every year a fleet of Japanese ships travel to the freezing waters of the Antarctic and here they hunt and kill nearly 1000 minke whales which end up being sold as meat in the markets of Japan but for the last 30 years the whale hunters themselves have been hunted and harassed by the environmental group Greenpeace.

Having seen footage of previous campaigns filmmaker Morgan Matthews was astonished by the drama of these epic sea battles and when Greenpeace invited him on their next anti-whaling expedition he thought he knew what to expect but when he traveled to the Antarctic to make this film the conflict came from an unexpected adversary and the outcome was one that no one could have predicted.
