Mario Ruspoli's "Three Cheers for the Whale" is on the same DVD as Chris Marker's The Case of the Grinning Cat and Chris Marker's Bestiary

Chronicles the history of mankind's relationship with the largest and most majestic of marine mammals, and graphically exposes their slaughter by the fishing industry.

Chris Marker's co-director, Mario Ruspoli (1925-1986), descendant of an aristocratic Italian family, had been a journalist, painter, and ethnologist before discovering his vocation as a documentary filmmaker. In the Sixties he became one of the founders-along with Jean Rouch, Edgar Morin, and Chris Marker-of the "direct cinema" movement, pioneering in the use of new lightweight cameras and synchronous sound recording equipment.

Ruspoli's eclectic filmography includes documentaries on medical, scientific, anthropological and historical subjects.
