TUESDAY, JUNE 21, CALIFORNIA FILM INSTITUTE, SAN RAFAEL, CA
On Tuesday, June 21 at the California Film Institute in San Rafael, CA, Director Louie Psihoyos and marine mammal specialist Ric O'Barry will present and discuss a screening of their 2010 Academy Award-winning documentary The Cove, along with a special live performance by the Grateful Dead's Bob Weir, in an evening that benefits Save Japan Dolphins, a project of Earth Island Institute.
The Cove tells the amazing true story of an elite team of activists, filmmakers and free divers, including O'Barry and Psihoyos, who embarked on a covert mission to penetrate a hidden cove in Japan, shining light on a dark and deadly secret.
A project of the Earth Island Institute, which encourages activism around environmental issues and provides public education, Save Japan Dolphins promotes eco-tourism in Japan as an alternative to the killing of whales and dolphins.
