This riveting film won the Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature in 2010. Told from an ocean conservationist’s point of view, it tells the true story of a secret slaughter of dolphins in a small town in Japan. Directed by Louie Psihoyos partnering with activist and former trainer Ric O’Barry, The Cove reveals animal captivity and cruelty against beautiful, intelligent creatures for profit and greed. The film calls for action to halt mass dolphin kills, change Japanese fishing practices, and educate the public about the risks of mercury poisoning from dolphin meat.
O’Barry, the trainer who worked with the original Flipper, now advocates against the captivity of any marine life. He and his crew meet resistance on many fronts as they perseverence to create this enlightening film.
