Taiwan’s Critically Endangered Dolphins
Christina MacFarquhar / 2010 / Taiwan/UK / 9min / En/Ch 英/中

For years, local activist groups have been fighting to save a critically endangered population of Indo-Pacific humpback dolphins in the Taiwan Strait. Industrial pollution is threatening to kill off these pink dolphins, known locally as “Matsu’s Fish.” This film, a Taiwan premier, asks the question: when will Taiwan start to take its environment seriously?

《The Cove》血色海灣
Louie Psihoyos/2009/美國/92分鐘


美國60年代當紅電視影集《飛寶》的海豚訓練師-瑞克•歐巴瑞Ric O'Barry帶領一個由社運份子和潛水精英所組成的團隊潛入日本和歌山縣太地町海灣,為揭發海豚圍捕真相,無視於警方的警告及肢體恐嚇。因為在這裡,每年有2萬3千隻的海豚遭到屠殺。這段日官方不斷反覆辯稱「為科學研究」並視為惡夢的鯨豚大屠殺的恐怖影片片段,目前已呈現給國際捕鯨委員會的當權者。

然而,此片之所以選擇將日本太地町的屠殺公諸於世,最大的擔憂及因素也是我們如何因過度漁獵而造成海洋生態滅絕。如同瑞克•歐巴瑞Ric O'Barry在片中所說:「若是我們無法改變什麼,那也不必理會其他更重要的事件了,因為根本就沒有希望。」

The Cove
Louie Psihoyos/2009/USA/92mins

The Cove won the 2010 Oscar for Best Documentary, in addition to over 50 other film festival awards, including Audience Choice for Best Documentary at Sundance. The film is an investigative thrill ride, leading us into a dangerous natural cove where one of the world’s worst environmental crimes has been taking place for decades. Ric O'Barry, the dolphin trainer from the TV show Flipper, leads a team of divers and activists who defy police warnings and physical threats to shed light on a dolphin roundup in Taiji, Japan, where 23,000 dolphins are slaughtered each year. Chilling footage from this annual slaughter is presented to the authorities at an International Whaling Commission, to the horror of Japanese officials who continue to defend the slaughter of whales for “scientific purposes.” The greater concern of the film, however, is how we are killing the oceans through overfishing. The reason they choose to make their point in Taiji, Japan is, as O’Barry says in the film, “If we can’t fix that, forget about the bigger issues. There’s no hope.”
