Be Strong, Be Gentle, Be Beautiful and Jiro Dreams of Sushi

We can’t wait to see to these two films soon. Be Strong, Be Gentle, Be Beautiful is about a 98-year old woman who has a tenth-degree black belt in Judo. She’s one of four people in the world to hold this high honor. She still teaches twice a week at her dojo in the Castro today. We’re planning on catching this documentary this weekend at the Castro Theatre.

Jiro Dreams of Sushi comes out in two weeks in the city.  Jiro is an 85-year-old sushi chef who works out of a small restaurant in a Japanese subway station. There’s nothing we love more than sushi and people who take such pride in their work.  The common thread in both these films is about discovering your life’s passion and making it your life’s work and purpose.  Are you going to watch these films?  Stay tuned for a review.
