The Birth of Saké
(2015, 1h 30m, filmmaker: Erik Shirai)
Through the unrelenting winter in the north of Japan, a small group of workers must brave unusual working conditions to bring to life a 2,000-year-old tradition known as saké. A cinematic documentary, The Birth of Saké is a visually immersive experience of an almost-secret world in which large sacrifices must be made for the survival of a time-honored brew.
