I can’t wait to see the new documentary The Cove, about dolphin hunting in Taijii, Japan. Here is the description from Sundance Film Festival: “…the town has a dark, horrifying secret that it doesn’t want the rest of the world to know. There are guards patrolling the cove, where the dolphin capturing takes place, who prevent any photography. The only way to stop the evil acts of this company and the town that protects it is to expose them…” The activists in the documentary sneak into the cove and put cameras in fake rocks to expose the hunters. It’s brave, it’s exciting, and it has the feel of a heart-thumping espionage thriller. Watch the trailer here: (WARNING: The trailer starts playing automatically.)
The cries of the dolphins at the end of the trailer just about broke my heart. Who would want to kill these beautiful, intelligent creatures?
