Fathom is a visually striking, profound new documentary that studies the communication between humpback whales. Directed by Drew Xanthopoulos, the film is decoding the language amongst animal species, in what is a fascinating piece of filmmaking. We had the pleasure of speaking to Xanthopoulos, to discuss the making of this project, working alongside Dr. Michelle Fournet and Dr. Ellen Garland, and on the revelation that different species have different cultures. Consider our minds blown.
