The Whale, 9' 16mm 2003

'A deliberation on the state of nature and the nature of the State…. The Whale combines several disparate components (including a parent-child dialogue on the relative threats posed by wild animals, an archival television interview with notorious RAF operative Ulrike Meinhof and citations from Thomas Hobbes’ Leviathan) to consider the need for a renewed communal sensibility in contemporary society.'

Jeremy Rigsby, Images Festival, Toronto 2005

The Whale is part of a series of films called ‘Afflicted States’
