The Cove is an astounding piece of investigative journalism with the
heart of an action thriller. Led by Louie Psihoyos, leader of the Ocean
Preservation Society, and Richard O'Barry, an internationally recognized
authority on dolphin training who is best known for his work on the
1960's TV show "Flipper," the film follows a high-tech dive team on a
mission to discover the truth about the international dolphin capture

techniques, including hidden microphones and cameras, the team uncovers
how this small seaside village serves as a horrifying microcosm of
massive ecological crimes happening worldwide.
The Cove is also directed by Louie Psihoyos, who brings confidence and
precision to his insider's account of this life-or-death covert
operation. A celebrated photographer who has created images for National
Geographic for 18 years, Psihoyos captures the magnificence of the
dolphins themselves and the ocean that surrounds them.
