25 Aug (Tue): Screening of "The Cove" an ACRES exclusive preview

Catch an exclusive ACRES preview screening of this film followed by a dialogue session with guest speaker Ms. Anbarasi Boopal, Director of the ACRES Wildlife Rescue Centre (AWRC).
"The Cove" is a fascinating, internationally-acclaimed documentary exposing the shocking truths about the killings of dolphins and, most importantly, how you can play a part to help them.

In the 1960’s, Richard O’Barry was the world’s leading authority on dolphin training, working on the set of the popular television programme Flipper. Day in and day out, O’Barry kept the dolphins working and television audiences smiling. But one day, that all came to a tragic end. "The Cove", directed by Louie Psihoyos, tells the amazing story of how Psihoyos, O’Barry and an elite team of activists, filmmakers and freedivers embarked on a covert mission to penetrate a hidden cove in Japan, shining light on a dark and deadly secret. The mysteries they covered were only the tip of the iceberg.
