Storyline

Negative media coverage on the never-ending whaling issue prompted first-time documentary filmmaker Keiko Yagi to find out more about the topic. With no budget, limited experience in filmmaking, no fluency in English, but armed with a video camera and a strong desire to find out about the truth of the matter on whaling, Yagi started her research.

Seriously low quality
22 September 2017 | by martineriksson-57664See all my reviews

I found this "documentary" on Netflix. I thought that meant it could be somewhat of quality but it's mostly like a really biased school project.

It's so obvious that this "film maker" has a negative view on the opposition against whaling. It's complete BS that they try to cover both sides and the truth of the situation.

Most of the film is Japanese people explaining how terrific they are... That really has a lot to do about the whaling and the dolphin hunt.

I guess Netflix only added it to their range so they can show that they are objective about the matter.
