Like many people in his generation, Louie Psihoyos grew up watching Flipper and Jacques Cousteau adventures on television. After National Geographic magazine hired him as a staff photographer, his admiration for the intelligence and beauty of dolphins, and for the oceans as an ecological system, grew as he learned how to dive and began to work underwater. But none of that quite prepared him for the experience of making The Cove, an award-winning documentary about the clandestine slaughter of dolphins in Japan.
