Using state-of-the-art equipment, a group of activists, led by renowned dolphin trainer Ric O’Barry, infiltrate a cove near Taiji, Japan to expose both a shocking instance of animal abuse and a serious threat to human health.

MUBI's take

Uncovering the sheer scale of wild dolphin slaughter in Japan, Louie Psihoyos’ heart-stopping film is a sharp indictment of the practices of sea-life centres and charitable organisations. Winner of the Best Documentary Oscar, The Cove makes its arguments with the narrative force of a thriller.
