Tradition
13 August 2018 | by abcvisionSee all my reviews

Every year in a sleepy town in Japan, Taiji there is a ritual of hunting whales and dolphins. From the outside it seems cruel and unusual. But from the inside it comes from a long tradition. The movie shows both sides and showcases how a 400 year tradition struggles in a modern social conscious world. Lots of beautiful shots and a story of strong views on both sides.
