  • biraz önce izlesem mi izlemesem mi diye karar veremediğim film.en sonunda o güzel yunusları avladıklarını vs. görmeye dayanamayacağımı düşünüp vazgeçtim.düşüncesi bile üzdü.
  • yunuslara karsi islenen vahsetin korktugum kadar gorsel olmadigi belgesel. sonunda insanin yuregini yakan goruntuler var ama bunlar hic bir sekilde bir haber bulteninde gorduklerinizden daha kanli goruntuler degil. yunuslara karsi islenen katliamin dunyanin diger yanlarin da gorunen gorece daha ciddi vahsetin yaninda esamesinin okunmamasi gerektigini dusunenlere o'barr'in verdigi cevapsa cok dusundurucu. "bu kucuk koydaki sorunu cozemiyorsak cok daha buyuk sorunlari nasil cozebiliriz?"

    --- spoiler olur mu bilmem ---

    gizlice yerlestirilen kameralara yakalanan avcilardan birinin anlattigi hikayenin avladiklari bir balinayla ilgili olmasiysa cok manidardir. hani ayarlamak istesen boylesi denk gelmez. ayrica japonya'da yasama hayalleri kuran beni bile bu dusunceden cark ettirebilecek kadar itici bir japonu gostermis belgeseldir.

    --- spoiler olmussa da teget gecti cok sukur ---

    edit: dizi demisim, fazla icmisim uyarisi icin magicflute'a tesekkurler
  • nihayet birileri, japonya'daki yunus katliamını bir söylenti olmaktan çıkarıp, tüm çıplaklığıyla gözler önüne seriyor: meşhur flipper'ın eğitmeni ric o'berry ve arkadaşları.

    ric'in yaşadığı vicdan azabı, bir zamanlar flipper'ı eğiterek başlattığı gösteri sektörünü yıkmak için çırpınışı, gerçekten yürek paralayıcı.
    yağmur altında üzerine astığı katliam görüntülerini gösteren televizyonla, tokyo sokaklarında saatlerce kımıldamadan duruşu, hayatımda gördüğüm en acıklı şeylerden biriydi.

    o kıpkırmızı koyu görmekse, kötülüğün gözlerinin içine bakmak gibi. izleyin.

    cove movie dolphins die in turkey
    by susan millward, executive director
    animal welfare institute

    the save japan dolphins coalition is outraged by the deaths of four dolphins at the sealanya dolphin park in turkey. the dolphins were captured from the wild in taiji, japan in 2008 as part of a notorious annual dolphin drive hunt.

    "these dolphins were captured in taiji in the killing cove as depicted in the documentary the cove, where they were ripped from their families," stated ric o'barry, campaign director for save japan dolphins. "their families were then butchered for meat -- the sale of the live dolphins subsidizes the killing for the fishermen. under these conditions of extreme stress, the deaths of these dolphins in turkey's sealanya dolphin park were inevitable. dolphins die an early death in aquarium tanks due to boredom, disease, and stress."

    their short lives in captivity were a stark contrast to their lives in the wild before they were unlucky enough to stray into the path of taiji dolphin killers. after being spotted with their podmates, they were chased with boats and driven to shore by the fishermen using noise. in panic they were herded into a shallow bay, cut off from the ocean and their former life. these four were then handpicked for a life in captivity in far off turkey, while their podmates were horrifically butchered for meat, fertilizer or pet food. the taiji dolphin hunts are the cruel reality of modern day aquariums and “swim-with-dolphins” tourist programs that source from the wild. the money paid by sealanya dolphin park for the dolphins is a direct incentive for the japanese fishermen to continue the hunts that result in the deaths of thousands of additional dolphins a year.

    the taiji dolphin hunts are the subject of an oscar-nominated film the cove which features our coalition’s campaign director ric o'barry, who has spent almost half his life trying to shut down the hunts. the hunts run from september through march and in all around 1000 dolphins are killed or captured in the hunts every year. later this year the cove, which received a slew of audience awards during its us run, will open across japan, and, for the first time, the japanese public will be exposed to the truth that lies on their shores. a media blackout has prevented the story from reaching the japanese people, who know little about the dolphin killing operation.

    susan millward, executive director of the washington dc-based animal welfare institute, stated: "the world association of zoos and aquariums (waza) refuses to step in and monitor their members and colleagues: the japanese association of zoos and aquariums (jaza) who are directly involved in the taiji dolphin captures. the taiji whale museum is one of several dolphin brokers in taiji and a member of jaza. so long as the aquarium industry has paying customers who want to see dolphins, they will provide a market for wild-caught taiji dolphins, and the hunts will continue."

    eight other taiji dolphins who were captured with those who died remain at the sealanya dolphin park.

    the save japan dolphins coalition was formed in november 2006 to combat the killing and capture of dolphins and other small whales in japanese waters.

  • an itibariyle oscar'i kapmistir.

    ric o'barry yunuslar icin calismaya devam ediyor, sahnede 'text dolphins to 44144' pankartini acti.

    neden oscar'i alirken digerleri gibi sahneye cikip ailesine, dostlarina tesekkur etmek yerine, o pankarti acti kendisi? cunku oduller onun icin onemli degil, hala yarim kalan gorevini yerine getirmeye calisiyor. yarim kalan ne mi? yunuslar. kendisinin de dedigi gibi bu belgesel bir amac degil, arac. taiji'de, o kucucuk koyda olanlari tum dunyaya gostermek, insanlari bilinclendirmek. bundan sonra da bitmiyor gorev. ric o'barry orada olanlari tamamen bitirmeyi amacliyor. bakin kendisini destekleyen hayranlarina attigi mail'de neler demis:

    "if you watched the oscars, you saw me and director louie psihoyos accept the best documentary awarded by the academy. wow, what an incredible moment!

    without your support, this would never have happened. so, even though i wasn’t able to thank you all at the podium, i thank you all now.

    but this has never been about winning awards. our job is to end the slaughter and stop the poisoning. and now our work in japan begins anew. we must focus like a laser on getting the cove and our message to the japanese people.

    but there are threats on the horizon. officials in japan are threatening repercussions against university and community groups that dare to show the cove. dolphin-killing fishermen’s unions are threatening lawsuits against theaters that show the film. there are even some signs that i could face arrest in japan, even though i’ve broken no laws whatsoever.

    we wont give in to this pressure. instead, i am making plans to spend months in japan with our save japan dolphins team. i want to be wherever we can find an audience. our message will particularly resonate with young people, to whom we need to reach out with the dangers of mercury-contaminated dolphin meat and the slaughter of dolphins they love as much as we do.

    if you can help me, it will make a world of difference.

    the oscar telecast is the most-watched tv show in japan! and they, and more than a billion other viewers, saw the cove movie win!

    but now i also need your help in sending a clear message to japan’s minister of state for consumer affairs and food safety, that the sale of mercury-laden dolphin meat must end now: sign and send the petition at: thepetitionsite.com/4/ban-the-sale-of-dolphin-meat.

    we need help in promoting the japanese version of the cove in the next weeks before the cove opens at japanese theaters. we need help for travel, video promotion, website outreach, legal defense, and screening the cove outside of theaters in libraries, universities, and town halls in japan.

    japan has 126 million people; only 600 have seen the cove so far. those who saw it were shocked and dismayed that this slaughter was happening in their country. we need to enlist their help and the help of millions of their fellow citizens to stop the japanese government from issuing 23,000 permits annually to slaughter dolphins. we need to seize on the momentum now to pursue an end to the slaughter, once and for all!

    will you help us get the truth out?

    thank you for your generous support of our efforts!

    campaign director
    save japan dolphins campaign

    p.s. the save japan dolphins campaign and earth island institute do not get any funds from the cove movie sales. (those funds go to the ops, which made the film, and their investors to reimburse them for their considerable costs in making the cove.)

    p.p.s. if you think there is any possibility that you might be able to come over to taiji on september 1st to celebrate the beauty of taiji and let them know that the killing of dolphins shouldn’t start again, please note that on the comment field on the donation form."
  • 60'ların tuhaf dizisi flipper'da flipper rolünü oynayan 5 yunusu eğiten ric o'bary'nin , bizzat flipperlardan birinin kucağında intihar etmesi üzerine yaşama, mesleğine olan bakış açısını değiştirmesinden sonra ortaya çıkan bir belgesel. o'barry bilerek "intihar" kelimesini seçiyor. yunusların, deniz memelilerinin bizim gibi istemsiz nefes almadığını, her nefeslerinin bir çabanın ürünü olduğunu anlattıktan sonra flipper'ın, gözü önünde son nefesini verip bir daha nefes almamayı "tercih ettiğini" ve kendini öldürdüğünü,
    bir yunusun bir akvaryumda, havuzda büyük bir depresyona girdiğini ve kendi varlığının bilincinde olduğu için büyük acılar çektiğini anlatıyor.
    bu olaydan sonra çalıştığı havuzda tutsak edilmiş tüm yunusları serbest bırakırken yakalanıyor.
    çok iyi para kazandığı ve kendi tabiriyle "her yıl porshce'sini yenilemesine imkan veren" işini bırakıyor.

    the cove'un hareket noktası bu...sonra bir grup aktivistin hayatlarını tehlikeye atarak japon hükümetinin her yıl 23.000 yunusun katline olur veren politikasını nasıl ifşa ettiğini izliyoruz.

    not: kan bataklığına dönen taiji millî parkındaki görüntülerin şahısların hassasiyet eşiğine göre sebep olacağı rahatsızlığın değişebileceği uyarısında bulunayım.
