This pilot trailer was produced with a grant from the National Film and Video Foundation.
"I have watched this clip many times. Man, this is great work. Very magical. Like a dream! Very haunting! If this trailer represents what the final product will look like, then there is no doubt that you will have a wonderful work of art in your hands that will captivate the world for generations. Those actors are great, evincing a lot of pathos even in the first few seconds that they appear in the clip. And the horn is haunting and forlorn. I had tears in my eyes! Shit, man, the texture of this piece! The colours! The sounds!"

Based on the widely acclaimed novel of the same name by Zakes Mda, THE WHALE CALLER is the story of a love triangle between the titular Whale Caller, his beloved whale Sharisha, and Saluni, the village drunk who teaches him to open his heart to people again.
Set in Hermanus, the scenic whale watching capital of South Africa, this is a vibrant tale of the New South Africa, with all of its challenges and complexities. It is about whales and nature. But above all, it is about people.
