Rated 4 out of 5 by from Bogans and bluefins As the one other reviewer (as I write this), I was sort of expecting a more, I don't know, didactic presentation on sushi. This very much wasn't that. It's more a look at current trends in sushi and bluefin tuna fishing particularly, from the words of those involved in the industry (whether as regulators, sellers, whatever). I very much enjoyed the scene with the trilby wearing greenpeace dork having a bad faith argument with the sustainable tuna fishing australian fellow at a sushi bar. 10/10 just for that clash of titans/worlds.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very informative Excellent overview of the fishing industry in Japan, although the title of the course led me to believe that I would learn something about making sushi. Instead, it just made me hungry.

About

Mark Hall
Mark Hall

Mark Hall is an independent filmmaker based in Austin, Texas. Sushi: The Global Catch is his first feature-length film project, which was conceived while visiting Warsaw, Poland. Mark was amazed by the popularity of sushi in eastern Europe and viewed the cuisine as emblematic of how economies have rapidly globalized. He was a part of the “early” days of the Internet, having established the world's largest online education portal in 1998. Mark's experience in media – along with his background in business and law – was a big help in completing Sushi. His last documentary, Mission on Seven, won a Platinum Award at the 2010 Houston Worldfest film festival. He attended graduate school in Japan and loves sushi.
