The Director of 'The Cove' Tells Us About the Biggest Story in the World Nobody Is Paying Attention To

1 May 2014 3:00 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Louie Psihoyos is pretty serious about the environment. His house is solar powered, he drives an electric car—the license reads Vus for “Vehicle Uses Sun,” it’s also the reverse of SUV—and yeah, he’s making a movie that may change the way we treat our planet. Psihoyos isn’t the first (or the last) to make a film that highlights how we’re killing the planet and guilting us to change our habits, but the Oscar-winning filmmaker of The Cove has more in store with his next film, 6, than exposing our sins. Screened as a work-in-progress at the Tribeca Film Festival, 6 (which producer Fisher Stevens said at the screening may not be the film’s final title) stands for our current state with the planet, as we’re on the verge of...

Tribeca Video: 'The Cove' Director Discusses His Latest Activist Doc

28 April 2014 10:43 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Academy Award-winning director Louie Psihoyos ("The Cove"), producer Fisher Stevens, and the subjects of their film Travis Threlkel and  Leilani Münter, discussed their documentary "6" in a panel moderated by Indiewire's Paula Bernstein. The conversation is part of a series of talks hosted at the Apple Store in SoHo.  As a documentary, "6" assembles a team of activists employing creative channels to show the world never-before-seen images that will change the way we understand issues of endangered species and mass extinction. When an audience member asked Psihoyos about when creativity started informing his activism, the director provided an anecdote. Psihoyos described the moment he shirked the formal constraints of journalism. In trying to tell the story of "The Cove" legally, Psihoyos was stymied by bureaucracy. Psihoyos said, "I had this lighting bolt of an idea. If we could break into the cove, we could actually show what's going on. I realized I was. »

Tribeca: The Director of 'The Cove' Has Made Another Activist Doc, And It Needs Work. Here's How He Can Fix It.

28 April 2014 7:33 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Few nature activists can bring their work to the masses, but that's exactly what longtime National Geographic photographer-turned-documentarian Louie Psihoyos didd with 2009's Oscar-winning "The Cove," an exposé of the rampant dolphin slaughter in the Japanese fishing industry. Now Psihoyos is attempting a similar achievement with "6," which showcases various activist efforts he's engineered with his colleagues at the nonprofit Ocean Preservation Society (Ops). "6" casts a much wider net than "The Cove." It explores the threat of a sixth "mass extinction" on Earth, citing the alarming statistic that around 30,000 species go extinct each year. On Friday, Psihoyos screened the film as a work-in-progress at the Tribeca Film Festival, and it still needs a lot of work. Like "The Cove," the filmmaker's new documentary turns the activist efforts of Ops into an exciting espionage tale as his team travels the world busting people killing and smuggling endangered ocean species.

Tribeca: Between Nas and 'Begin Again,' what are the festival's must-see movies

16 April 2014 9:17 AM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

The Tribeca Film Festival began as a way for New York to rebuild culturally after the World Trade Center attacks in 2001. For the first time since then, the area around Ground Zero is dominated by a sparkly, newly finished Freedom Tower, which represents so much more than the city’s resilience and recovery. The Tribeca festival played a small, but not insignificant, role in that recovery, inviting artists and film lovers to the city and reassuring New Yorkers that life can be beautiful even in the darkest of days.

After more than a decade of growth, Tribeca is also entering »

20 March 2014 10:21 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Kino Lorber has dated documentary "Who is Dayani Cristal?," winner of the Sundance 2013 World Cinema documentary award, for theatrical release. The documentary directed by Marc Silver and written by "doc fixer" Mark Monroe ("The Summit," "Chasing Ice," "The Cove") focuses on the human toll of the U.S. immigration crisis. Starring Mexican actor/activist and Canana producer Gael García Bernal ("Y Tu Mamá También," "No") the film will open on April 25th in New York, followed by a release to select cities nationwide. (My interview with Monroe is here.) García Bernal traces the steps of one of many workers on the Central American migrant trail who have died in the Arizona border desert known as “the corridor of death.”  Aided by the forensic examiners of the Pima County Morgue in Arizona, the filmmakers look into the mystery surrounding the death of this unidentified man. During the investigation, Bernal embeds himself »

Film Review: ‘Mission Blue’

4 February 2014 1:43 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The majesty and imperiled status of the world’s aquatic life are vividly captured in “Mission Blue.” Fisher Stevens and Robert Nixon’s documentary also serves as a biographical portrait of internationally renowned oceanographer and eco-activist Sylvia Earle, whose trailblazing career and inspiring ongoing efforts provide compelling human interest, while Bryce Groark’s spectacular underwater photography offers eye candy aplenty. This “Mission” is marred only by co-director Stevens’ insistence on inserting himself whenever possible as a wholly gratuitous host/jester/co-star; that inapt vanity-project whiff aside, the brisk, polished pic looks shipshape for international broadcast sales.

Stevens met Earle after producing 2009′s Oscar-winning “The Cove,” about dubious Japanese dolphin-hunting practices. That led to him following his new best friend — though the earnest, affable, dignified Earle treats him more as a patient professor would a breathlessly eager-to-please freshman — for three years of her nonstop globetrotting to research, lecture and lobby on behalf of ocean preservation. »
