People eat. It is a universal experience and that is how we survive. However, eating has become more than a replenishment of nutrients. It has become an opportunity for bonding with others as well as an act of interacting with nature. The film explores the interpersonal relationships that food nurtures and takes you on a journey throughout Japan looking at how life can be led richly through the daily ritual of eating. From the Tsukiji fish market to an Okinawan farm, the film offers poignant interviews with intriguing personalities.

If you are in the Bay Area, come join us this Saturday 5/21 for the DVD release special screenings at our cinema inside NEW PEOPLE in San Francisco. For more information, visit www.newpeopleworld.com.

Taste of Tea Continues Japan Relief Effort

We are holding a second fundraising film event at our cinema in San Francisco, CA on April 17th at 3:30pm. This time the chosen film is THE TASTE OF TEA, an opening film for the 2003 Cannes Film Festival that is based in a little town surrounded by the natural beauty of Tochigi, Japan, which is also an area vastly damaged by the recent earthquake and is striving to recover as we speak.

Written, directed and edited by Katsuhito ISHII , The Taste of Tea is a unique and gentle family portrait tackling the universal themes of time, people and their lives.

As 8-year old Sachiko (Maya Banno) tries to get rid of a giant version of herself who seems to pop up everywhere, her older brother Hajime (Takahiro Sato), privately wrestles with his love-struck heart. Meanwhile, their mother Yoshiko (Satomi Tezuka) is working hard, coming out of retirement as an animator, as her husband and professional hypnotist Nobuo (Tomokazu Miura) watches on with slight apprehension. Even Nobuo’ s brother and successful manga artist Todoroki has his problems. And lastly there’ s Grandpa, the most bizarre and perhaps the most perceptive of all, who continues to search for a better way to live life to the full.

4/17 (Sun) at 3:30pm

Tickets: suggested donation of $10 or more at the box office
Or purchase advance tickets online (there is a service fee for online purchases)

100% of proceeds will be donated to the NORTHERN JAPAN EARTHQUAKE RELIEF FUND
