The 2010 Oscar-winning feature documentary by Greek-American photographer and filmmaker Louie Psihoyos has enjoyed worldwide success. The movie is a call to action to halt mass dolphin kills in Japan, specifically in the cove near Taiji. A desperate warning addressed to the human race as to realize that destroying the planet’s animal and plant life equals self-destruction.
