Australia 2009, 92 minutes, documentary
Director: Louie Psihoyos

A group of activists, led by renowned dolphin trainer Ric O’Barry, infiltrate a cove near Taijii, Japan to expose both a shocking instance of animal abuse and a serious threat to human health.  At last, the truth of The Cove comes to the fore in an act of covert filmmaking that turns a documentary into a gripping action-adventure thriller . . . and a heart-pounding call for help from the world’s oceans. The result is a provocative mix of investigative journalism, eco-adventure and arresting imagery that adds up to an urgent plea for hope.
Winner of Audience Award at Sundance and International Documentary Festival (Amsterdam), Best Environment Documentary (Media Awards). Shortlisted for the 2010 Academy Awards.
