the little town with a really big secret...
"Winner of the Audience Award for Best Documentary at the 2009 Sundance Film Festival, The Cove follows a high-tech dive team on a mission to discover the truth about the international dolphin capture trade as practiced in Taiji, Japan. Utilizing state-of-the-art techniques, including hidden microphones and cameras in fake rocks, the team uncovers how this small seaside village serves as a horrifying microcosm of massive ecological crimes happening worldwide."
this documentary should be required viewing for the entire human race. i take very small solace from the fact that i'll be dead(i hope)by the time the last polar bear dies or the seas become dead from over-fishing & pollution. this is a real & true story about the evil that men do. there will be no escaping its consequences.
