... "We have not even announced it officially yet, but we've launched a short film contest... to put together the expression of how humans view whaling and whales in 2011 - there are signs that attempts to provide for rights for cetaceans, via policy, are gaining momentum. We may well be in that important moment, similar to the inception of real momentum for the abolition of slavery, where voices are rising to describe cetaceans as candidates for official inclusion within our circle of kinship. We want our short film contest to recognize, and at the same time act as a catalyst in any capacity it can, for this moment."
