About the Movie

From Texas to Seattle and New York to Moscow, the demand for sushi, a cuisine formerly found only in Japan, has grown exponentially and a multi-million dollar industry has been created to support it. In a rush to please a hungry public, the expensive delicacy has become common and affordable, appearing in restaurants, supermarkets and even fast food trailers. The traditions requiring 7 years of apprenticeship in Japan have given way to quick training and mass-manufactured solutions elsewhere. This hunger for sushi has come at a price and has the potential to upset the ecological balance of the world's oceans, leading to a collapse of all fish species. Edited by Sandra Adair, ACE and Catie Cacci with an Original Score composed by Brian Satterwhite. A FilmBuff Presentation.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: The film's arguments about sustainability are convincing and hard to shake. And, the movie suggests, you - the sushi eater - can help: Crave it and enjoy it, but eat sushi responsibly. – Rachel Saltz, New York Times, Aug 2, 2012

Fresh: It isn't all bad news in a doc suggesting sustainability and culinary pleasure aren't mutually exclusive. – John DeFore, Hollywood Reporter, Aug 3, 2012

Fresh: [Its] kaleidoscopic meticulousness proves comprehensive without ever feeling tedious, an especially impressive feat considering how quickly it becomes message-oriented. – Michael Nordine, Village Voice, Jul 31, 2012

Rotten: Just providing information, like a list of helpful websites and apps in the closing credits, isn't enough. – Scott Tobias, AV Club, Aug 2, 2012

We don't need fish and animals to thrive

Worth a watch...

Awesome. Sushi lovers (or even non-sushi lovers) will enjoy watching this film.

Balanced documentary, visually stunning, grand soundtrack

Mark Hall has put together an outstanding documentary. Whether you're a sushi lover or not, this film is absolutely one to watch. He provides a very balanced and thoughtful look at a complex and controversial topic. It does just what a documentary should do: Allow the viewer to consider all arguments; pose questions themselves; and, ultimately form their own opinion. It's visually fantastic. And, Brian Satterwhite's soundtrack stands on it own but compliments the film so well, too!
