If you only see one documentary this year about man’s relationship to the natural world see  IN THE WHALE.

In the shark-filled waters off Cape Cod, Massachusetts, Michael Packard, the region’s last-remaining commercial lobster diver, has long tempted fate. Over a lifetime of adventure, the 57-year old Packard has had his share of harrowing experiences including close encounters with great whites, a few near-drownings, even surviving a plane crash in the jungles of Costa Rica. But until a June morning in 2021 he had never been swallowed by a whale.

This documentary vividly recounts his story of being engulfed by a humpback whale, held in the blackness of its watery mouth, and then spit out onto the sea’s surface and rescued by his crew. IN THE WHALE  brings to life a dizzying tale of survival with biblical proportions. But what came once the limelight had dimmed was even more significant for Packard.  A nature film of rare depth and sheer amazement.
