Film Still from Kakehashi

A documentary about a free-spirited chef born of a strict culture. “Kakehashi” is the vision that Chef Nobuo Fukuda’s father had for him, to bridge the gap between Japan and the rest of the world. Facing the challenges of a strict environment and emigrating to a new one, Chef Nobuo unexpectedly bridged the gap through his cuisine.

In 2007, Chef Nobuo was awarded the James Beard Awards for Best Chef: Southwest.
