    Cinemas in Japan have started screening a controversial film about a village where dolphin hunting is an annual tradition.

    There have been many angry protests against the film in the past months and now only a few cinemas are willing to show it.

    Al Jazeera's Florence Looi reports that many Japanese are accusing the film of being "anti-Japanese".
