A joint Sino-Japanese documentary, “Yasukuni” (靖国) is having some trouble finding cinemas willing to show it, apparently due to pressure and threats from right wing groups who believe the movie is Anti-Japan. The director had this to say:

“‘Anti-Japanese’ was a phrase that was used here [Japan] often before the Sino-Japanese War,” the director says.

“It was used to encourage nationalism. It’s a very dangerous phrase. Those who use it are irresponsible.”

thump thump thump thump thump Don’t mind me, I’m just banging my head against this wall here…
