This is the trailer for "The Cove," a covertly filmed documentary about the notorious Japanese seacoast town where an annual massive slaughter of dolphins takes place as secretly as possible. The locals are sensitive about it, as guilty folks often are.

"Winner of audience awards across the world, including Sundance, SilverDocs and Hot Docs, The Cove follows a team of activists and filmmakers as they 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."

excellent documentary, but why are documentaries always pissing in someone elses pool at exposing some kind of wrong doing that the authors believe are being committed.
