Award-winning eco-thriller documentary “The Cove” is now out on DVD and
Digital Download!

Named by the National Board of Review as the best documentary of the year and recently shortlisted for the Academy Awards, “The Cove” follows an Oceans Eleven-style team of underwater sound and camera experts, special effects artists, marine explorers, adrenaline junkies and world-class free divers who carry out an undercover operation to photograph an off limits cove located in Taiji, Japan. The team is on a mission to discover the truth about the international dolphin capture trade. 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.

The film has been making waves since it premiered at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year. There has been worldwide attention on Taiji and the annual dolphin drives off the coast of Japan. Under intense pressure Taiji called for a temporary ban on killing bottlenose dolphins. The film, which was originally rejected, was shown at the Tokyo Film Festival due to public outcry. And for the first time since the campaign launched 3 years ago Japanese Media are covering the issue.

But this is just the beginning. Fishermen are still killing Risso dolphins and Pilot Whales and will likely resume killing bottlenose at any time.
