Some 400 inner city schoolchildren, parents, and teachers come to the magnificent THEARC theatre complex in South East Washington DC to see a screening of "Where the Whales Sing" at the Nation's Capital Environmental Film Festival. For me it was very moving to see how well behaved these young children were, and how they related to Elsa in the film, despite the huge differences in lives. As often happens when I attend a screeningn of the film to schoolchildren, I was impressed by their obvious knowledge, curiousity and enthusiasm for the whales. Thank you all for coming!

A special thank you to the festival organizers and especially to Maribel Guevara for getting me to Washington.
