"The Cove" (documentary 2009) (video)

If you don't know why so many people are "making a fuss" about what is happening to dolphins in Taiji, Japan, please watch this documentary. Winner of the Audience Award for Best Documentary at the 2009 Sundance Film Festival, The Cove follows a high-tech dive team on a mission to discover the truth about the dolphin capture trade as practiced in Taiji, Japan.
