Every cut is a lie. It’s never that way. Those two shots were never next to each other in time that way. But you’re telling a lie in order to tell the truth. –Wolf Koenig.

FILM OF THE WEEK – SUSHI: THE GLOBAL CATCH

June 21, 2011 , , , , , , ,

SUSHI THE GLOBAL CATCH

Production Still from "Sushi: the Global Catch" - Tunanigiri

On the last student film set I worked on, a generous Sushi place in Austin, Texas, donated a 100 piece Sushi platter. The Sushi was kept safe over a pack of ice for an hour under the hot Texan sky before it was all consumed. But have you ever wondered how Sushi became a global cuisine?

The tradition that required 7 years of apprenticeship in Japan transformed to a quick training and mass manufactured solutions elsewhere. The expensive delicacy has become common and affordable, appearing in restaurants, supermarkets and even fast food trailers. Beautiful raw pieces of fish and rice now appear from Warsaw and New York to football games in Texas towns. Can this growth continue without consequence? Sushi: The Global Catch is a feature-length documentary shot in five nations that explores the tradition, growth and future of this popular cuisine.

I love my Sushi, as many of you. While I am willing to become a more informed and a conscious Sushi consumer, I am unwilling to let go. Therefore my favorite line in the film’s trailer is, “WE ARE GOING TO FIGURE IT OUT”!

The film had its world premiere at the 37th Seattle International Film Festival on the 8th of June 2011. For screenings in your area or to organize screenings check their website. Looking forward to seeing this film.
