The Birth of Saké
Erik Shirai is fond of saké. That's why he set out to observe the process of making saké in Japan, where the tradition has been preserved for 2000 years. There is a sense of tradition which is greater than the people worshipping it. The people actually producing saké submit themselves with great dedication. Workers leave their home, friends and family for half a year to produce this respected beverage. Eventually, Shirai spent a whole year at the 144-year-old family-run Yoshida Brewery. This is the trailer for his documentary.
