This film may reverse all of your thinking about standing on the sidelines regarding Japanese Whaling… it’s time to Act! Find The Cove on Facebook and lend a hand.
This award-winning, ground-breaking documentary directed by Louie Psihoyos, plays more like an espionage thriller, depicting the annual dolphin hunt in Taiji, Japan. The Cove follows a team of activists and filmmakers as they infiltrate a heavily-guarded cove in Taiji to expose the capture and slaughter of dolphins and the consequences of eating the mercury-laden dolphin meat. In this remote village the film crew witnesses and documents 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 labeled as whale meat.
They are in the latest news, “Japanese whalers who complained of injuries from rancid butter thrown at them by an anti-whaling group were actually suffering from their own pepper spray attack, the protesters said Saturday.”
The film will be shown in the loft above the Deli at Greens N Grains grocery in downtown Egg Harbor and screenings are free – however, the seating is limited to 30 persons. You may make a seating reservation by calling 920.868.9999 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
“The $6.50 natural and organic dinner special; soup, salad, a fresh baked roll and tea will feature another tasty example of the Deli’s specialties,” says Kathy Navis, store owner. “We start serving at 6 pm with the film screening at 7 pm. The dinner special is available to anyone without reservations, but our film seating is limited.”
Greens N Grains Natural Foods and Deli is open daily from 10 am – 5 pm – except on movie nights when they will remain open until 9 pm.
