Days of the Whale: An Artsy Way to Escape Reality

4 min 2 yrs

Independent filmmakers are not only visionaries but they also bring the reality of our world to the screen.

I love a summer blockbuster just as anybody else, but let’s face it, as much as I wish that the “Man of Steel” was, in fact, real, after I leave the theater the fantasy is over.  Indie directors bring you into their part of the world, regardless of where they are from, and they show you a view of their lives and tell you a story of the importance of being human through their eyes.  Director Catalina Arrroyave Restrepo does just that in her 2019 directorial debut of Days of the Whale (Dias de la Ballena).
