Advance screening of The Cove, documentary about the dolphin trade in Japan (Portland!)

From: Anthony

I'm posting this by request as it is likely of interest to many of our members, who may or may not be aware of what goes on at Taiji.

The trailer doesn't show graphic images of dolphin slaughter, but I'm not sure about the full movie. Note that this is for Portland -- I believe that there will be a Seattle screening August 7-9 at the Harvard exit. If/when I get details on that I'll post them.

The text I was sent:

I thought your group may be interested in the new film THE
COVE. I would like to invite you and the members of your group
to see THE COVE, an outstanding and thrilling documentary about
the dolphin trade in Japan. Please feel free to send this
information to anyone that might be interested. If you would
like more information or would like to be involved further with
the release of THE COVE, please let me know.

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 trade as
practiced in Taji, Japan. Utilizing state-of the-art
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.

THE COVE opens in Portland at Fox Tower on August 7!
