FATHOM (2021): New Trailer For Whale Documentary From Apple TV+…

Deciphering the complex communication of whales is what new Apple TV+ documentary, Fathom is all about.

Directed by Drew Xanthopoulos; starring scientists, Dr. Michelle Fournet and Dr. Ellen Garland; the two scientists are the world’s most dedicated whale researchers and Fathom promises an exploration of their groundbreaking work and more.

I can’t wait to see what this film has to say about communication between whales. After such an intriguing trailer I hope, there’s much to reveal. It would be wonderful to think that after watching this film, I might able able to ‘send greetings‘ to the closest whale. But, something tells me that there’s no way it’s that simple.

Fathom Release Dates: June 25th, 2021 (US & UK), Apple TV+

Firstly, my colour-loving and Attenborough-appreciating self is definitely making time for this. Second, the music in this trailer puts me in such a good and hopeful mood. I can’t wait to see what Attenborough has to say about all teh gorgeous hues.

Hosted by Will Smith, Amend – The Fight for America is a new series that offers a look at the evolving, often lethal, fight for equal rights in America; through the lens of the US Constitution’s 14th Amendment.

Created by Robe Imbriano and Tom Yellin; additional key cast includes Diane Lane, Mahershala Ali, Laverne Cox, Joshua Jackson, Samuel L. Jackson and Aja Naomi King.

I couldn’t help but think of Ava DuVernay’s 13th (2016) as this played. For it’s a very informative and useful documentary about the history of racial inequality in the the United States prison system.

I’m not expecting this to be quite as eye-opening as 13th, but I am looking forward to learning a thing or two, and seeing the various ways all the famous people involved will be contributing. 

Randall Park, Pedro Pascal, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Sterling K. Brown, Bobby Cannavale, Rafael Casal, Whitney Cummings and many more also star. 

Amend – The Fight for America Release Dates: February 17th, 2021, Netflix, (US)…

From writer/director Elizabeth Lo; Stray is a new documentary about the life of Zeytin, a stray dog living life on the streets of Istanbul, Turkey.

As someone who’s never been to Turkey and had no idea bout the stray dog situation there, I’m looking forward to learning and virtually meeting Zeytin.

Also, it may be the trailer music or the way Zeytin seems to be, largely ignored. But this could be quite moving.

Stray Release Dates: March 5th, 2021, (US), Internet…
