Free Japanese Film Screening! Hunt For Matsutake
Directed by Alejandro Yoshizawa
This spring, we will feature a series of films, CHIKYU FILMS, which will share the stories and people who examine the close relationship to our environment, our earth, or Chikyu 地球 in Japanese.
This documentary looks at Japanese-Canadian history and the history of Matsutake hunting. Matsutake – a delicacy in Japanese cuisine – can only be found in the wild, and is both a commercial and cultural symbol. The film chronicles annual trips into the forests of Canada in search of the elusive and much sought-after mushroom.
Discussion and Q&A after film.
Film in Japanese with English subtitles
