太地町 Taiji – Dolphin Slaughter Season Starts
Dolphin activist Ric O’Barry claims that the people of Japan have never learned about the dolphin slaughter in Taiji because none of the major Japanese media have ever sent reporters to the ‘Killing Cove’ where the dolphins are slaughtered.
This year, thanks to the Sundance Film Festival awarding winning documentary ‘The Cove‘, many international journalists and camera crews from Japan have arrived in Taiji (Wakayama) this week. Although the killing season started on September 1, no blood has been seen in coves around Taiji so far.
Please watch the trailer and encourage your local cinema, university, NPO or club to show the documentary.
In this clip, the world famous National Geographic photographer and director Louie Psihoyos talks about the making of the documentary.
