Here are two “foodie films” showing at the event

Jiro Dreams of Sushi

Jiro Ono, recognized by the Japanese government as a national treasure for his contributions to Japanese cuisine, may be the greatest sushi chef in the world. Yet his restaurant, humbly located in a Tokyo subway station, seats ten and serves only sushi. The Michelin Guide has awarded it three stars, which means that just to dine at the restaurant is worth a trip to Tokyo. Seats are reserved up to a year in advance and the meal costs at least $300. The title speaks to the legendary 85-year-old chef’s tireless commitment to perfecting his craft. With a score by Philip Glass, incredible shots of the work that goes into his sublime creations, a fascinating look at a tuna being rated in the famous Tsukiji Fish Market, and an intimate peek into his relationship with his son, this debut film from director David Gelb must be seen to truly understand mastery.


Three Stars

Since 1926 a Michelin star has been a coveted award that translates into fame and fortune for a chef and his restaurant. Three stars, Michelin’s highest rating, means “exceptional cuisine, worth a special journey,” the equivalent of an Academy Award®. Who reviews these restaurants? How are these treasured stars awarded? THREE STARS sheds light on those questions through interviews with Jean-Luc Naret, the Guides’ evasively polished director, and plows through the controversies to which they give rise. Ten celebrity chefs from three countries are featured in their kitchens, gardens, and fields discussing the merits and travails of being three-starred. Featuring Jean-Georges Vongrichten (Jean-Georges), Yannick Allénoe (Le Meurice), Juan Mari & Elena Arzack (Arzack), Sven Elverfeld (Aqua), Sergio Herman (Oud Sluis), Hideki Ishikawa (Ishikawa), René Redzepi (Noma), Olivier Roellinger (Le Coquillage), and the luminous Nadia Santini (Dal Pescatore), this film presents a rare opportunity to visit great chefs where they work and live. Watch for Jiro Ono!
