The sun sets on the Norwegian seal hunters

The action packed documentary SEALERS – ONE LAST HUNT is a wistful and fascinating documentary about a part of Norwegian coastal life which is quickly going extinct. Under the leadership of veteran captain Bjørne Kvernmo and his young colleague Espen Brandal, we join the crew aboard the sealing ship Havsel as it sets out into the sea between Iceland and Greenland, where the ice grows thinner and the seal hunters grow fewer year by year. As they train a handful of motivated new recruits, Kvernmo and Brandal are keenly aware that they are a part of a dying breed.
