Teague and I met Louie Psihoyos, director of The Cove, at AFI SILVERDOCS. Psihoyos talked about how he made The Cove, which documents his team’s mission to expose the destruction of ocean wildlife in a secret cove in Japan. We really enjoyed his stories about getting footage using both high and low tech spy tools – many of which are featured in the film. We asked Louie Psihoyos about the role of the web in distributing his film, and about how he ended up making a documentary that feels more like a thriller. Take a look at our interview below!
