SEAFOOD AND WOMAN[2013-]
25’ x 2 episode
A documentary capturing the lives of women whose common thread is the bountiful seafood of Ehime Prefecture.
Ehime Prefecture, which lies on the northwest side of the island of Shikoku, is blessed with rich and plentiful seas. One of the prefecture’s most famous regional foodstuffs, and one that has been eaten since the Edo Period, is jakoten, made from small fish that are blended into a paste and then fried. The first episode of this two-part series follows the lives of a group of local women who are particular about “handcrafting” jakoten to the last. The second and final episode focuses on women at a neighborhood restaurant specializing in an assortment of dishes comprised of farmed yellowtail.
