Director Of 'The Cove' Under Attack

Louie Psihoyos, who directed and starred in the Oscar winning documentary The Cove, had to go up to bat for his film on Wednesday after a scientist featured in the film filed a lawsuit against the distributors.

It seems that Tetsuya Endo, a toxicologist from Japan’s University of Hokkaido, is demanding that footage he is featured in be removed from the documentary, as he claims he did not sign a release form, was misrepresented, and that his reputation has been tarnished. Gee, really? You’re involved in the mass killings of dolphins with unprecedented mercury levels in their system and that has come with some backlash?

Psihoyos has defended the film, which looks at dolphin slaughter off of the town of Taiji, insisting that Endo’s interview is accurate and has not been doctored in any way.

“He talked on the record at length to us, several times,” Psihoyos said. “He did say the things that he said, in the order that he said them. What we published was the truth, and now he wants to take back the truth.”

In contrast Endo stated, “I never signed off on the use of my footage, so I want the director to apologize for using it without my permission.” The lawsuit also demands 11 million yen ($131,000) in damages.

Here’s the thing… If there’s a camera in your face, it’s understood that you’re being filmed and you need to watch yourself. Am I right or am I right?!
