"Evil Is Always Human" The body of the whale in modern audio-visual culture

The common story of whales and people is one of the most popular of the 20th century. It is a story associated with death and predation. Curiously, between the lines of that story, there is an unsuspected and accurate account of human vision and listening as well as the role of these two senses in modern history. Evil Is Always Human is a project underway from Jose Luís Espejo that tells of the role that the body of the whale has had in the development of current capitalism through the analysis of the images and sounds that humans have created or captured from these marine mammals.

The whale is also a recurring subject in Jessica Sarah Rinland's filmography in which it appears as a starting point that allows her to deal with issues related to ecology, history, the representation of animals in the cinema, the environment or cultural changes.
