ABOUT THE PETITION In The Cove, a team of activists and filmmakers infiltrate a heavily-guarded cove in Taiji, Japan. In this remote village they witness and document activities deliberately being hidden from the public: More than 20,000 dolphins and porpoises are being slaughtered each year and their meat, containing toxic levels of mercury, is being sold as food in Japan, often times labeled as whale meat.
Directed by Michel Gondry. With Noam Chomsky, Michel Gondry, Richard Feynman, Michèle Oshima. A series of interviews featuring linguist, philosopher and activist Noam Chomsky done in hand-drawn animation.
