The Loneliest Whale: The Search for 52

An emotional quest to find the elusive 52-Hertz Whale. Scientists believe this whale has spent its life in complete solitude, calling out at 52 Hz – a frequency that no other whale can hear – and never once receiving a response.

As we embark on a marine expedition in search of the 52-Hertz Whale, we also explore the phenomenon of this whale’s tragic plight while shedding light on its connection to the growing epidemic of loneliness in our interconnected world.



"Neither slick nor propulsive, "The Loneliest Whale" gently combines aquatic adventure and bobbing meditation on our own species's environmental arrogance."

Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times

“The result is a touching, often beautiful film. The Loneliest Whale is certainly informative, but, perhaps more importantly for our day and age, it's a mood piece that will speak to those who find something evocative and relatable about the story of 52.”

Bilge Ebiri, Spirituality & Health

"The enthusiasm and unflappability of the crew are engaging, even when the film feels a bit at sea."

Sheri Linden, Hollywood Reporter
