The Cove (trailer)

(Opens NY & LA July 31st Select Cities August 7th)

Winner of audience awards across the world, including Sundance, SilverDocs and Hot Docs, The Cove follows a team of activists and filmmakers as they infiltrate a heavily-guarded cove in Taiji, Japan. In this remote village they witness and document activities deliberately being hidden from the public: More than 20,000 dolphins and porpoises are being slaughtered each year and their meat, containing toxic levels of mercury, is being sold as food in Japan, often times labeled as whale meat.

The majority of the world is not aware this is happening. The Taiji cove is blocked off from the public. Cameras are not allowed inside and the media does not cover the story. It’s critical that we get the word out in Japan.  It’s critical that we get the word out—everywhere.  We believe that once the Japanese people know, they will demand change.


One Response to The Cove (trailer)

  1. It is still happening and we are fighting to stop it. Sea Shepherd has people monitoring the situation. Every time the fishermen of Taiji head out to capture dolphins, we flood the Japanese Prime Minister and Japanese embassies around the world with calls, faxes and emails. They are feeling the pressure. Join us and help bring an end to this atrocity.

    With eleven of you, I make a dozen. With ninety-nine of you, I make a hundred. With all of you, we can change the world. But I cannot do it without each and every one of you. You matter! Never give up! For the Dolphins.
