Every Friday at 7pm, the Wallingford Neighbors for Peace and Justice screen a movie they hope will spark some meaningful conversation—and we’re pretty excited about this week’s selection: The Cove, the 2009 Oscar winner for best documentary. The film follows a team of activists on a mission to expose the killing of dolphins in a small coastal town in Japan; it’s as riveting as any thriller, and beautifully shot. If you haven’t Netflixed it yet, consider checking it out tomorrow night.
The Cove screens at Keystone Congregational United Church of Christ (5019 Keystone Place N, Seattle), with a discussion to follow on the current plight of dolphins and sea mammals. Scott West, a retired U.S. Federal Agent hired to work for Sea Shepherd Conservation Society, will be around to answer questions, as well as representatives from the Northwest Animal Rights Network.
