  1. “Minds in the Water” is a feature-length documentary following the quest of professional surfer Dave Rastovich and his friends to protect dolphins, whales and the oceans they all share. Through Dave’s journey—a five-year adventure spanning the globe from Australia to the Galapagos, Tonga, California, Alaska and Japan—we see one surfer’s quest to activate his community to help protect the ocean and its inhabitants.”

    When you think of surfers, your mind wanders to stereotypes. Well, truth be told. I’m married to one and at times it’s not far from what you might think (I say that we extreme love for my husband). But there has always been a movement among those that love the water to protect it and all that inhabit it. As I told my husband, “You enjoy playing it? Then it’s your duty to find a way to keep it clean. Whether it be beach clean up or dolphin rescue, find a way to protect what you treasure.”

    I had become so inspired by this documentary which seemed to focus more on dolphin rescue that I actually signed up with all the organizations involved. What I found interesting about the film was the fact that I didn’t know half of the stuff that occurred… occurred! I was heartbroken to see how many dolphins are killed each year in Japan. But, since the film has only hit the festival circuit this year I want to turn your attention to its predecessor, The Cove. Same concept and relatively the same people. It’s on Netflix Instant and frankly does a better job of explaining the issues behind the dolphin killing in Japan.

    It has received countless awards from festivals and an Academy Award in 2010 for Best Documentary Feature.
