UK Premiere of A Whale of a Tale and Q&A with Director Megumi Sasaki

The town of Taiji has hunted dolphins for over 400 years but in 2010 an American documentary meant that overnight the coastal town became a battleground between the local community and foreign environmental activists. Made in response to The Cove (2009), Megumi Sasaki’s film follows Jay Alabaster, an American journalist who moved to Taiji, and Atsushi Nakahira, a Japanese-nationalist who attempts to bring the town and the environmentalists into dialogue. A Whale of a Tale examines the complex issue of Japan’s contemporary dolphin hunting. A Whale of a Tale is a fascinating and unique examination of this controversial topic that engages with both the local fishermen and the environmentalist that seek to stop whaling practices. UK premiere of A Whale of a Tale is followed by a Q&A session with the director, Megumi Sasaki.
