Oscar Docs: The Cove, Food, Inc., and Burma VJ
Academy award nominations are out, and three films reviewed in Mother Jones last year are up for awards in the Best Documentary category:
- The Cove, about the hidden dolphin slaughter in a Japanese town. (Read my interview with the filmmakers here.)
- Food, Inc., about the horrors of factory farms, slaughterhouses, and meat plants.
- Burma VJ, about citizen journalists who risk their lives to document government brutality in Burma.
