To mark International Mother Earth Day, the United Nations Information Service (UNIS) Vienna, in cooperation with the Preparatory Commission for the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty Organization (CTBTO), invites you to the Ciné-ONU Vienna screening of the film.

The Search for the Loneliest Whale in the World is a feature-length documentary that will take audiences on a journey to find the forgotten "52 Hertz Whale." Calling out at 52 Hz, a frequency unrecognized by other whales, this mysterious creature is believed to have lived its life in complete solitude, its calls forever unanswered by its own kind.
