Japanese whale hunters' perspective revealed in documentary

As Japan pushes to lift the ban on commercial whaling, a group of traditional Japanese whalers are pleased their side of the story is being told in a new documentary.

    When the 2009 documentary, The Cove, was released, it drew widespread acclaim and an academy award. But for the people of the tiny Japanese village of Taiji, it brought unwelcome world attention and vilification for their practice of hunting dolphins and whales. The new documentary shows a different side of the story.

    Al Jazeera's Gabriel Elizondo reports.
