Scars of Freedom

A short documentary by Céline Cousteau

Scarsoffreedom_hero_full_for_exchange

Scars of Freedom is short documentary produced by Céline Cousteau and supported by the Treadright Foundation. While filming in Chile's Juan Fernandez Archipelago, Céline and her team heard a radio call, alerting a fisherman had spotted a humpback whale entangled in fishing net, buoys & sinkers, not far from where they were located. Struggling to break free and left for dead, the team (who are untrained for such rescue missions) set out to free the humble giant. With an estimated weight of 250kg, the net had cut halfway through one side of the whale's tail. They captured the incredible footage and produced Scars of Freedom. In contrast of the trauma, the documentary features beautiful images of humpbacks swimming freely in the protected waters off Hawaii.

Scars of Freedom documents the repercussions of human negligence contrasted with the incredible power of human compassion and what is possible when we work together.
