The Cove.


I recently came across a documentary entitled The Cove. Although The Cove gained critical acclaim it has yet to receive the commercial success it truly deserves.

The Cove is an academy award winning documentary, delving into the life a small Japanese coastal town over shadowed by corruption and the illegal slaughter of 23,000 dolphins every year.

The documentary follows a team, whose ambitious goal is to put an end to the slaughter of innocent dolphins. To do this they devise a plan to reveal the secret of the cove to the world. By installing hidden cameras under the cover of the night, the team was able to film the shocking events which literally stained the ocean red.

The Cove is set for release in Japan later this summer, and I for one hope the documentary has a crippling effect on the controversial slaughter.
