Categories: East Asia, Japan, Arts & Culture, Environment, Film, Protest

Joi Ito announced on his blog [1] that the award-winning documentary The Cove [2] has been dubbed in Japanese and released for free online. In the post, Ito-san wrote: “Why the online release of the film in Japan is so important is that the Japanese people should watch the movie and make up their own mind. Regardless of what you think about the film, banning it is unexcusable.”
Last year right-wing activists opposed to the screening of the documentary [3]and some theaters refused to show it.
