Born To Be Free
‘Born to Be Free’ is a revelatory investigative film made by three intrepid, free-diving journalists Gaya, Tanya and Julia, about the global trade in wild sea mammals. Their journey takes us to the most remote corners of Russia and witnesses, for the very first time, the shocking treatment that whales, dolphins and walruses are subjected to as we discover the corruption at the heart of this cruel international business. A sad and a scandalous story of eighteen belugas – white bowhead whales – languishing in tanks in the hot Black Sea coast. A story that has brought us – freedivers who always communicate and dive with free dolphins and whales in their native element, behind the scenes of many dolphinariums and helped to reveal a number of ugly secrets and hidden facts.
