The Cove: An Oscar Nomination… A Legion of New Leaders

Louie Psihoyos

Louie Psihoyos

Louie Psihoyos, director of the 2010 Oscar-nominated documentary feature film The Cove and widely regarded one of the top photographers in the world, including 18 years illuminating the pages of National Geographic, joins ZOOM’D for an unflinching view of a dark subject for all of humanity: the merciless slaughter of 23,000 dolphins annually in a small coastal cove in Japan. Louie brings to life the soul-shifting horror taking place annually in Taiji and the eco-thriller actions taken by a dedicated filmmaking team that expose realities of the cove and the intertwined dolphin and human tragedy at play. The story is one of commitment and boldness and, just as importantly, a showcase reflection on leadership—legions of new activist leaders have been inspired by the film. In this time of great transition across the globe, this ZOOM’D episode makes us realize that it is up to us—we must wake up to what is really going on and take a stand for what is ultimately most important.
