Watch the Official Trailer for the Dolphin Slaughter Documentary ‘The Cove’
“The Cove” tells the amazing true story of how Louie Psihoyos, Richard O’Barry and an elite team of activists, filmmakers and freedivers embarked on a covert mission to penetrate a hidden cove in Japan, shining light on a dark and deadly secret. The mysteries they uncovered were only the tip of the iceberg.
In the documentary about the dolphin massacre in Taiji, Japan, a simple scene speaks volumes: an underwater camera is placed at the site of the killings, where up to 23,000 dolphins are snuffed out annually. This camera, through a time lapse effect, first shows the blue-green water and then shows the gradual colouring of the water into a deep blood-red. The fishermen are killing the dolphins they can’t sell to recreational marine facilities.
