Jiro Dreams of Sushi

World View - Global Cinema at the Roxy 
This fall, The Roxy Theater is proud to bring you WORLD VIEW: CULTURES AT THE TABLE - four films which highlight and celebrate the unifying power of food around the world. Hosted by Global and Cultural Affairs in Arts Missoula, and presented free of charge. 

Jiro Dreams of Sushi is the story of 85-year-old Jiro Ono, considered by many to be the world’s greatest sushi chef. He is the proprietor of Sukiyabashi Jiro, a 10-seat, sushi-only restaurant inauspiciously located in a Tokyo subway station. Despite its humble appearances, it is the first restaurant of its kind to be awarded a prestigious three-star Michelin Guide rating, and sushi lovers from around the globe make repeated pilgrimage, calling months in advance and shelling out top dollar for a coveted seat at Jiro’s sushi bar.

Jiro Dreams of Sushi is a thoughtful and elegant meditation on work, family, and the art of perfection, chronicling Jiro’s life as both an unparalleled success in the culinary world and as a loving yet complicated father.
