Tabrizi sat on his parents’ lap at Sea World and watched dolphins and killer whales perform tricks. Her interest in these creatures began when she was very young. Inspired by animal activists Sylvia Earl, Jacques Cousteau, and David Attenborough.
She continues into adulthood when her romantic notions of marine animals become bitter reality, prompting her to make donations and sign petitions for environmental organizations in hopes of tackling pollution, whaling, and other causes of marine conservation.
We saw him calling a restaurant and asking if they were using eco-friendly plastic straws. But straws, he’ll find out at some point, like fighting deforestation and banning toothpicks.
As he researched the spread of plastic in the oceans. He learned that most of the pollution was caused by fishing nets and other industrial waste.
The environmental groups she helps make headlines for headlines in their campaign against the straw. Which is 0.03 percent of the pollution. But hardly ever mention commercial fishing.
He then prepares to visit Taiji, Japan, a notorious place where dolphins are routinely killed. One of the many film activists interviewed warned that he was a danger to police and was being spied on in his hotel room, possibly because the government bent over.
Go back to close this practice. GOOD. But then he was stopped by the Taiji police for no apparent reason. He sneaks into slaughter bay and gets his hands on his disturbing footage.
His Japanese “vacation” reveals precisely what the dolphin hunters are doing there. And eliminates any suspected threat of competition to the fishing industry.
With two flashing neon arrows indicating commercial fishing:
Tabrizi changed his tactics a bit and followed the story wherever he went. He’s learned a lot: illegal fishing for endangered species like bluefin tuna.
An increasingly rare shark mass killing for the Mafia shark fin soup rocket. How the “Safe for Delphins” logo annoys canned tuna.
How many governments around the world subsidize the fishing industry despite the very lack of regulation and supervision. How more damaging than deforestation is the overfishing of the environment. How the word “sustainable” is nothing but marketing noise.
Our review for the Seaspiracy:
The Tabrizi incorporates a largely compelling – and sometimes quite annoying – industrial mosaic portrait left to its ruthless gadget.
Sometimes it pollutes water with first-person action documents. E.g., He’s almost left behind with the authorities being fabricated as part of a massive shutdown.
That the Maritime Governing Council puts aside when the company refuses interview requests, etc. The film sometimes reveals the sensational quality of journalism: it joins a group called Sea Shepherd, which resembles the military version of Greenpeace, in a night attack on illegal fishing boats.
He doesn’t use a hidden camera. He “breaks” the convention of the fishing industry. He used a coalition spokesman for plastic pollution to make conflicting statements; It is similar to a copy of Cove, which hides behind rocks and hedges to photograph the dolphin killer at work in Taiji.
However, it can argue that such an approach may not be beyond reason. For the film, Tabrizi’s actual sources gave the film the solid foundation it needed. He even interviewed his idol Earl, whose in-depth knowledge is very familiar with Tabrizzi’s central argument.
The main problem with documentaries like Tabriz’s face is entertainment.
When following heavily armed men to catch a trawler full of lawbreakers, one must be battling the gaudy head shape of too many non-fiction films, but in the end, the facts of the case are much more enjoyable.
There’s also the problem of getting rid of the word “conspiracy”. A term is currently heavier than the baked potato in a steak.
Like it or not, it ruined the Factories film with the tonal effect of the promotion. Is the fishing industry’s portrayal more of a global conspiracy than, say, the fossil fuel industry?
Both are ancient crafts deeply rooted in world trade and whose brutal environmental impact is difficult to reverse. One destructive industry is more popular than another lousy industry.
Of course, some disturbing fishing industry ethical issues occur in the shadows, but calling its corrupt elements conspiratorial is almost nonsense and is a hurdle we must overcome to get Tabriti’s passionate, benevolent, and ultimately to the point claims persuasive.
Ocean piracy is not the purest form of documentary journalism. But Tabrizi takes his point with a conviction fundamental enough to be worth the time.
