According to AP, Louie Psihoyos will be at the screening of "The Cove" in Tokyo on October 17, even though he could be arrested for what the Japanese police says was trespassing when he and his crew filmed the dolphin slaughter in Taji, Japan. Regardless, Psihoyos is thrilled that the film will be opening in Japan.
The annual dolphin hunt in Taiji starts in September, but things have already changed. Earlier in the month 70 dolphins from this year's catch were set free.
"I was elated. I am cautiously optimistic it's the start of good things for the Japanese people," Psihoyos said.
