Dolphin Adventures (DVD)

by: Michael Wiese, Hardy Jones,

Jacques Costeau tried.

Pioneer dolphin researcher John Lilly said it couldn’t be done.

But in 1978 a ship of fools set out to swim in the open oceans with wild dolphins. Taking a cue from Aristotle, who said, ”dolphins care for man and enjoy his music”, the filmmakers played an ‘underwater piano” and for three days interacted with a school of wild dolphins.

A ”close encounters of the aquatic kind”, this classic film documents the first recorded human-wild dolphin encounter in modern times.

Michael Wiese has a knack for being at the right place at the right time and when that’s not the case, he enthusiastically creates his own opportunities. He has been a producer, director, writer, and publisher. Twenty-five years ago he broke away from the straight and narrow to create a substantive body of work. Despite being diagnosed five years ago with Parkinson’s, his search for healing has taken him from stem cell therapy to Amazonian plant medicine. His spiritual quests have been documented in his latest films The Sacred Sites of the Dalai Lamas (Tibet), The Shaman & Ayahuasca (Peru), and Talking with Spirits (Bali).

Hardy Jones has been a pioneer in filming dolphins, killer whales and sperm whales underwater in the wild. He began the struggle to end the slaughter of dolphins in Japan in 1979. Jones graduated from New Canaan Country School, Choate School and Tulane University. He was awarded a CBS News Foundation Fellowship to Columbia University where he studied international law. At CBS News, Jones worked as a researcher, writer and in the election and space units. He went on to become news director and on-air anchor at the CBS affiliate in Anchorage, Alaska. Prior to working at CBS Jones served as a Peace Corps volunteer in Peru. In 2003 Hardy Jones was diagnosed with multiple myeloma, a form of blood cancer connected to chemical pollutants. He has fought to alert the public and governments to the danger of toxins in the marine food chain and their linkage to disease in dolphins and human beings. He was won numerous awards for his films, including Lifetime Achievement Award from International Wildlife Film Festival, A Genesis Award from the Humane Society of the United States, Wildlife Filmmaker of the Year from Wildscreen and an Explorer’s Club Award as well as many others. Currently Jones is executive director of BlueVoice.org. He is on the Ocean Council of Oceana. He and his wife Deborah Cutting live on Anastasia Island just off Saint Augustine, Florida. They share their lives with a Chow named Chou Chou, and two cats - Buddy and Gracie. From a nearby beach they frequently see dolphins and, during the winter, right whales.
