Notes:
With an outstanding mixture of fiction, animation, music video and old files, the film warns in the most beautiful way about an impending tragedy.

‘Requiem 2019’ is co-directed by Rutger and the visually innovative music video director, Sil van der Woerd. The musical content is from Lolly Jane Blue.

This film is produced for a part of Danish Filmlab Aarhus called 'Aarhus Stories 2011', where musicians meets film directors, and together re-interpret short films.

Rutger's Notes:
'The slaughter of whales as a source of food is so outdated. Just because that is what they have always done? Tradition? Come on, now! People are the worst type of animal. One day, during a trip in a canoe, I literally looked straight into the eye of a whale. It is something that every man on Earth should experience. We must not be allowed to destroy these beautiful creatures. The consequences would be enormous. This is how we got around to the theme for Requiem 2019. Sil and I simply had to make something to stop people hunting down these wonderful creatures. I can’t go along with Sea Shepherd during their campaign. It’s better for me to do what I do best, and here it is!'
