Short, Avant-Garde, Documentary 16m 2019

Set in Kushiro, the northeastern port city in Hokkaido, Fuel quietly observes an expert griller working at one of the oldest robatayaki (fireside cooking) restaurants in Japan. A patient and contemplative film that matches the unhurried pace of the traditional slow cooking method, its precise use of sound and image savors the beauty of this unique grilling process.
