Abstract:

The year is 1965. In a unique 10 week experiment, a fully-grown male bottle-nosed dolphin and a young woman begin living together 24/7 in a flooded house. The aim was to find out whether the dolphin could learn to speak English. But as the weeks progressed, the experiment turned into an experience far darker than anyone could have possibly imagined. This extraordinary film reveals the almost-unbelievable tale of one of the 1960's most controversial experiments into animal intelligence, masterminded by influential scientist and cult figure John Lilly. This is the bizarre story of burgeoning dolphin communication research, an extraordinary plan for extra-terrestrial contact and a frustrated interspecies love triangle between Carl Sagan, researcher Margaret Howe, and a highly sexed dolphin named Peter.
