For the first time ever, a documentary film is dedicated to the bottlenose dolphin in the wild. Entirely shot on film, The Dolphin explores the social and behavioral dynamics of man's best underwater friend. The beauty and grace of this animal is revealed, leaving the viewer with a greater knowledge of the dolphin and perhaps a sense of awe.
The filmmaker, Harold Arsenault, followed a group of about 100 dolphins over 6 months near Abaco Island in the Bahamas. He explained, “Bottlenose dolphins in the wild are difficult to film; as soon as a human enters the water, they swim away. It took me three months of diving without scuba gear to finally be able to approach and film these wild creatures.”
