Moving Images Distribution carries the 1977 documentary called
Greenpeace: Voyages to Save the Whales. The original film was 53 minutes
and won awards at a number of festivals including the American Film
Festival and Chicago.

There is a 30 minute version available on video for $195. In addition to
the footage on the campaign to disrupt whaling, it has footage of whaling
from the first half of the 20th century. If you need any more information,
please call.
