EATRIP Environmental Film Festival

Presented by JICC, Embassy of Japan and the Environmental Film Festival in the Nation's Capital

Part of the Environmental Film Festival in the Nation's Capital. For more information and the complete festival schedule, visit the EFF website.

Eating is about more than just filling our stomachs—it’s a universal experience that draws us closer to nature and to one another. It has become an opportunity to create and strengthen social bonds—a time to chat about our lives and learn about the lives of others—but at its core it’s also an intimate interaction w0ith nature. If life is a journey, then food is the vehicle. We can’t seem to get anywhere without it.

Proving that life can be enriched by the daily ritual of eating, Eatrip explores contemporary Japanese food culture through the experiences of people from different walks of life: the head monk of a famous Buddhist temple, a Japanese soup stock distributor, an Okinawan woman leading a self-sustainable lifestyle devoid of modern conveniences, a tea master, an actor, and a musician and writer who recites poems about food.

Join us for this Washington, D.C. premiere, but whatever you do, don’t come hungry!
