The Cove

I'm amazed at how passionate people can be. The film, The Cove, exemplifies this to a T. Activist and former dolphin trainer, Ric O'Berry, along with the OPS Team including director Louie Psihoyos, takes the audience on a journey to a small fishing village in Japan called Taiji where heinous acts occur, fueled by a 'multi-billion dollar dolphin entertainment industry and an underhanded market for mercury-tainted dolphin meat'. The documentary uncovers a heart-breaking and horrific story that is told in such a beautiful and powerful way. I was saddened, infuriated, mesmerized, inspired and changed somehow by watching this documentary.

If you get the chance, please watch it. It's an incredible film.
