We are Showing The Cove at the Ariston this Thursday

Don't know if you know this but... we got SPECIAL PERMISSION to show this film as it has not been released in Italy (Leonardo, correct me if I'm wrong). It is an award winner (Academy Award Best Documentary 2009) and we are really excited to have it as part of this year's series. Here is what the website has to say about it...

"...THE COVE follows an elite team of activists, filmmakers and freedivers as they embark on a covert mission to penetrate a remote and hidden cove in Taiji, Japan, shining a light on a dark and deadly secret. Utilizing state-of-the-art techniques, including hidden microphones and cameras in fake rocks, the team uncovers how this small seaside village serves as a horrifying microcosm of massive ecological crimes happening worldwide. The result is a provocative mix of investigative journalism, eco-adventure and arresting imagery, adding up to an unforgettable story that has inspired audiences worldwide to action.

THE COVE is directed by Louie Psihoyos and produced by Paula DuPré Pesmen and Fisher Stevens. The film is written by Mark Monroe. The executive producer is Jim Clark and the co-producer is Olivia Ahnemann."

Films at the Ariston are for Members of the Italian American Association. You can buy this year's membership card at the Association or at the Ariston the night of the film!
