Members of BlueSphere Foundation went to the Tonga Islands, last September with cinematographer Shawn Heinrichs to shoot the movie Betrayal. Shawn Heinrichs is the well-known producer of the recent movie “Mantas Last Dance”
The short film was done to raise awareness of the plight of the humpback whale. The documentary shows the grace and might of the humpback species through interactions between underwater model Hannah Fraser, and a mother humpback and her calf.
Betrayal is a story about a woman who has been deeply betrayed. Believing she will never trust another again, she sinks into depression, severing all connections with her world. Plunging deep into despair, she experiences an unexpected visit by humpback whale calf, a being whose species has suffered the greatest of betrayals.
