Can a Film Change an Industry?

On the next Your Call we'll bring you a conversation Rose Aguilar had with Louie Psihoyos, director of the documentary film, The Cove. The Cove reveals an annual slaughter of tens of thousands of dolphins in a small town in Japan, a reality that the Japanese government wanted to keep hidden. But now the story is out to the world. The Cove won the audience award at Sundance in 2009 and since our interview first aired live, the film won the Oscar for best documentary. We asked our listeners, what are you doing to save dolphins? Does a film have the power to change a whole industry? It's Your Call with Rose Aguilar.

Louie Psihoyos, director of The Cove, winner of the audience award at Sundance in 2009. Psihoyos was a photographer for National Geographic for 18 years and his photography has appeared in Fortune, Smithsonian, The New York Times Magazine and Rock and Ice.
