Q&A following the film with director Mark Hall, composer Brian Satterwhite, and editors Sandra Adair and Catie Cacci
Sushi, a cuisine formerly found only in Japan, has grown exponentially in other nations, and an industry has been created to support it. In a rush to please a hungry public, the expensive delicacy has become common and affordable, appearing in restaurants, supermarkets and even fast food trailers. The traditions requiring 7 years of apprenticeship in Japan have given way to quick training and mass-manufactured solutions elsewhere.
This hunger for sushi has led to the depletion of apex predators in the ocean, including bluefin tuna, to such a degree that it has the potential to upset the ecological balance of the world’s oceans, leading to a collapse of all fish species.
Winner of the Special Jury Prize at the Seattle International Film Festival and other awards, and having appeared at over 20 film festivals worldwide, this is the first Austin screening of SUSHI: THE GLOBAL CATCH.
This screening of SUSHI: THE GLOBAL CATCH is a Texas Filmmakers' Production Fund benefit screening.
Presented in cooperation with Kino Lorber - AliveMind Films.
