The Slow Food movement is about a lot of things, and passion for food is one of them. That’s the theme that Slow Food Charleston is going for with the second film in their annual film series, Jiro Dreams of Sushi. The documentary tells the story of 85-year-old Jiro Ono, one of the world’s greatest sushi chefs, who works his magic out of a humble 10-seat restaurant hidden away in a Tokyo subway station. “We’re trying to show documentary films that in some way reflect what we’re all about — clean, good food, and people who are passionate about food,” says Susan Bass, executive director of Slow Food Charleston. “This story just sounded too good to be true.” The free showing will feature $2 beers from Holy City Brewery, and will be followed by a reception at Fish featuring appetizers and drinks inspired by the film. Later films in the series will focus on local farming and food access.
Price: Free, $10 for reception
