The award-winning indie favorite “East Side Sushi” returns to Tucson for a special run at The Screening Room beginning Friday, October 9. “East Side Sushi” won a special jury award for “Bridging Cultures” at the 2015 Arizona International Film Festival.
Years of working in the food industry have made Juana’s hands fast-very fast. She can slice and dice anything you throw at her with great speed and precision. Juana wants to become a sushi chef, but is unable to because she is deemed the “wrong” race and gender. Against all odds, she embarks on a journey of self-discovery, determined to not let anyone stop her from achieving her dream.
“East Side Sushi tells a compelling and socially-conscious story that is equally tear-inducing and mouth-watering. ” — Rachel Zou, Asia Pacific Arts
