Shallow Water. Deep Secret.
See, I'm also Flipper!
This year's documentary Oscar winner takes a look at a controversial practice in Japan. Every year, over 20 thousand dolphins are lured into a remote cove and slaughtered. The meat, laden with mercury and unfit for human consumption, is sold as whale meat and typically ends up on school lunch menus. The filmmakers risked arrest or worse to capture this practice on film, using secret cameras hidden in fake rocks.
