From the award-winning director of “A Handful of Salt” comes a documentary about saké brewers of the Noto peninsula in Ishikawa prefecture.
A glass of Japanese Saké is filled with the spirit of the Japanese saké brewers, or toji. The history of Japanese saké goes back to 2000 years ago, and its brewing process is extremely detailed and complex.
This documentary film follows the lives of artisans who shed their lives to pass on the heritage, to brew the perfect drop of saké.
Narrated by Tomoe Shinohara
After the screening there will be a light reception with a saké tasting of Sogen Saké, the brewery featured in the film.
