Synopsis

In 2010, THE COVE, a documentary about dolphin hunting in Taiji, Japan, won an Academy Award. The movie certainly brought attention to the whaling issue as a whole. But was the documentary entirely truthful? Did it portray both sides of the story correctly? Or was it a well-crafted story using sensationalized techniques - including hidden cameras - to tell a one-sided portrayal of the problem? More importantly, why has there not been a film from Japan responding to THE COVE? Well, now there is.

 

Director

After working at Tokyo branches of several major Hollywood film studios, Keiko started her own company YAGI Film Inc. With a strong curiosity and adventurous spirit, Keiko has traveled to many wild unexplored regions, including the Amazon, the Galapagos, Cuba, Israel, South Africa, Kenya, Egypt, and India, gaining opportunities to see Japan from the outside. She is often told that she doesn’t look and think like a Japanese.
