Oscar Winning Documentary â€œThe Coveâ€ highlights Dominica as a Key Player in Preservation & Conservation of Natural Environment
At the 2010 Academy Awards held in the United States on Sunday Night, a very important event occurred which directly involves Dominica.
The movie which captured the Best Feature Documentary called â€œTHE COVEâ€ – which 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.
THE COVE featured Dominica as an island with special interest in protecting the worldâ€™s oceans and all species within.
The Nature Island image of Dominica was brought to the forefront due to this film whose reach has impacted as far as Japan.
Environmentalist, Atherton Martin believes this film which will be shown for the first time in Dominica on Thursday March 11th from 7 pm at the Harlem Plaza, comes at an opportune time as Dominica will again be called to vote for or against matters of preservation and conservation.
THE COVE will be shown free of charge, and everyone is invited to an open viewing of this critically acclaimed film.
