Japan May Finally Show “The Cove”

Six Japanese movie theaters will screen an Oscar-winning documentary about dolphin hunting in Japan, the film’s Japanese distributor said Monday, after pleas from free-speech advocates to resist pressure from nationalists to block its release.

“The theaters have taken a stand,” Mr. Kato said. “But protests are continuing, and we cannot let our guard down yet.”


This comes after many cancellations.  Catch up on it from the New York Times here.
