Dolphin' s Circle


Dolphins draw the circle between the border of sea and the sky; we can’t discernibly distinguish whether they are flying in the sky or swimming in the ocean.

Do you know which type of dolphin loves jumping and turning several circles in the sky, and which type of dolphin is the most competitive amongst all? Meanwhile, which type of dolphin is the most sluggish even dozing on the surface? Furthermore, which type of dolphin is categorized as the most mischievous, being capable of playing tick-tack-toe on their own bodies, physically?

Dolphins’ Circle is the whales and dolphins’ documentary filmed by Kuroshio Ocean Education Foundation in 2008, specifically customized for whales and dolphins. In this film, the daily lives regarding Long-Snouted Spinner Dolphin and Risso’s Dolphin are meticulously recorded. In addition, via the approach of video, some segments by Fraser’s Dolphin, Bottlenose Dolphin and Sperm Whale vividly epitomize the robust liveliness referring to the east coast of Taiwan.

As retrospect, while Jin Lei, one of the directors participating in this film- was composed the script, he was reminded that Sperm Whale would habitually leave a circle on the surface diving into the ocean aligned with Long-snouted Spinner Dolphins tend to form a circular turn while they are jumping in the sky, moreover, there are the circular patterns imbedded on Risso’s Dolphin ‘s body; whereby, Jin Lei decided to name the documentary after ‘Circle’ ,in which symbolically represents the dual rate dolphins, the axis of the film, existing in the east coast.

In terms of characteristics, Long-snouted Spinner Dolphin and Risso’s Dolphin are distinctly featured by their divergent speed, i.e. agility versus slow, which simultaneously unfurls the versatility of the ocean. Genuinely, we are looking forward to cruising on “Dolphins’ Circle” with you, exploring the abundant biodiversity akin to the east coast, tangibly.
