A film festival in Japan has decided not to show a documentary about Japan's wartime sexual enslavement of women and girls the so-called "comfort women".
The film now pulled from the festival is called 'Shusenjo: The Main Battleground of the Comfort Women Issue,' directed by Japanese-American director Miki Dezaki.
It was to be screened at the Kawasaki Shinyuri Film Festival, outside Tokyo.
But the organizers said they had to cancel it, citing supposed safety and management risks because some people interviewed in the film had sued to stop the screening.
That decision has been met with protests.
A film company, Wakamatsu Production, said it was withdrawing two of its movies from the festival, accusing the organizers of "murdering freedom of expression".
