THE BIRTH OF SAKÉ (Japan/USA, 2015, 94 min.)
Washington, DC Premiere
The 144-year-old Yoshida Saké Brewery does things the old-fashioned way: dedicated artisans work in concert with natural forces  the temperature and humidity of the air, the chemistry of the water, the swirling koji mold that fuels fermentation  to uphold a millennia-old tradition. The craftsmen live a life of monastic focus, sleeping and eating together under the brewery's roof, but also one of great beauty. Through rich cinematography and sensitive filmmaking, Erik Shirai immerses us in the sensory world of saké, and in the whimsy and warmth of the people who make it. Directed by Erik Shirai. Produced by Maokoto Sasa and Masako Tsumura.

Q&A follows screening.

Tickets, $10.
