Herds of fussing far-right and ultra-nationalists got Louie Psihoyos’s documentary ‘The Cove’ pulled from theaters. For the doc, a crackpot espionage team filmed footage of the bloody Taiji cove where dolphins are caught to be Flipper-ized. 23,000 a year are harpooned, labeled “whale meat” and stuffed into the kids’ free lunch.
One such group, Society to Seek the Restoration of Sovereignty, protests:
The work intentionally distorts Japanese people’s food culture, and showing this will hurt many people’s feelings.
Sensitive Japanese people: Do not watch this trailer.
