PHUKET: The award-winning documentary The Cove will be screened twice at Central Festival Phuket next week to raise awareness of how dolphins are caught at the Taiji Cove in Japan and sold for use in dolphinaria around the world.
Central to the documentary, however, is how many of the dolphins are butchered and the meat sold to supermarkets.
Confirmation of the screenings came today at a meeting between Shoongiat Chotithamaporn, PR & Tourist Marketing Division Manager at Central Festival Phuket, and Nick Anthony, co-founder of the local environmentalist group SEEK (click here).
The movie will be shown on August 7, at 2pm and at 5pm. The venue will be under the canopy in the forecourt outside Homeworks at Central Festival Phuket East.
Entry is free.
An estimated 250 students from the Prince of Songkla University (PSU) Phuket campus are expected to attend, the Phuket Gazette was told.
