Join us for a special screening of East Side Sushi. Bay Area filmmaker Anthony Lucero's newest project reflects a fusion of cultures and flavors in this original screenplay that tells the story of a working-class Latina single mother who strives to become a sushi chef. As with many of his other films, Lucero's inspiration for the story came from his observations of people from all walks of life. "I've always liked lesser-known stories of everyday people," he says. "I wonder what their life is like. And I often want to pick up a camera and follow them, and ask questions about their lives. It's my documentary background."
Film Screening (107 minutes), followed by Q&A with Associate Producer Vicki Wong
