Japan, 2011, 82 minutes Documentary
Its 7:03pm and you've just arrived at Ginza station, Tokyo. Hungry, you wade down the escalators to a long hallway, dotted with a Hoshino coffee joint, an internet café and Bank of Japan ATM. You notice a small sushi shop at the end of the hallway. You enter, only to be told there is an 8 month waiting list for this tiny subway station sushi store, where a simple Ono will set you back 30,000 yen. You wonder, how could this be? JIRO DREAMS OF SUSHI has the answer. More than sushi, this documentary explores a dying resilience and dedication that will inspire you to your core, and raise your expectations of documentary subjects forever. JIRO DREAMS OF SUSHI is a guided tour of creativity discipline, its origins and the necessary sacrifices, all under the guise of a food documentary.
