May 19 – The Cove

19 05 2010

You doubted the ability of a documentary to get and hold your attention. You said they were boring, filled with information and old men who narrate endless facts you will never remember. Then you were forced to watch The Cove and you were given a different example of documentary in action – perhaps even documentary at it’s best.

Write a post in reaction to the film. What did it make you think about? How did it challenge your current ideas? Did it anger you? Are you ready to do something about the issues it raised or have you forgotten about it already? What was it about the film that held your attention? Would you watch more documentaries if they were a similar style to The Cove?

Or write a post about the issues discussed in the film. If you’re looking for information check out TakePart.com and the blog post about what has happened since the film was released.
