"Jagdzeit" follows a disparate troop of idealists on board of the Greenpeace ship Esperanza in its mission to prevent the Japanese whaling fleet hunting for endangered animals in the Antarctic Ocean. The documentary shows how the Esperanza tries to take up the trail of the whalers in the vastness of the Southern Ocean who, however, want to avoid a confrontation. With tiny inflatable dinghies animal protection advocates try risking their lives, to obstruct the fleet as much as possible. A race against time begins. The film by Angela Graas largely foregoes bloody images and a simple black and white painting. Next to the thematization of a current environmental scandal, the director presents an impressive portrait of activists and their motives.
