About the Film:
In this meticulously researched documentary, filmmaker Mark Hall traces the origins of sushi in Japan to its status today as a cuisine that has spawned a lucrative worldwide industry. This explosion in demand for sushi over the past 30 years has brought with it problems of its own, as fish stocks have steadily depleted, threatening the balance of the ocean’s ecosystems.

Through extensive interviews with prominent industry representatives and environmental activists, Hall carefully presents the various solutions being proposed to the vexing issue of overfishing. Winner of the Special Jury Prize at the 2011 Seattle International Film Festival, Sushi: The Global Catch raises some pressing questions that all sushi lovers should seek to address

    I'm embarrassed to say this but.....I could NOT find the theater. I drove up and down Lamar and did not find it. I really wanted to attend...however I am rather thankful that I do not have an extra large portion of guilt I have to eat along with my sushi. Is ignorant bliss?

    Rachael - I went on line and bought a ticket a week or so ago. It came back saying price of ticket is on hold until a certain number is achieved. When might we be advised. Thanks.

      Hi Kathy - you will only be charged if we hit our goal by Dec 5th. (tell your friends - we're 1 ticket away!) I believe the transaction occurs on that date. If we do not hit our target number of attendees, you will not be charged anything. Let me know if you have any other questions!
