"No matter where you go, there you are."


Watch the trailer for East Side Sushi


A cross-cultural foodie fable, East Side Sushi, written and directed by Anthony Lucero, starring Diana Elizabeth Torres (Inherent Vice), that follows a female Mexican-American chef who dreams of working behind the male dominated sushi bar at a Japanese restaurant.

Years of working in the food industry have made Juana’s hands fast, very fast. She can slice and dice anything you throw at her with great speed and precision. When single-mother Juana lands a position as a kitchen assistant at a local Japanese restaurant, she discovers a whole new world of cuisine and culture, far-removed from everything she has ever known. While working in the restaurant’s kitchen, Juana secretly observes the sushi chefs and eventually teaches herself to make a multitude of sushi. Eventually Juana attempts to become a sushi chef, but is unable to because she is the “wrong” race and gender. Against all odds, she embarks on a journey of self-discovery, determined to not let anyone stop her from achieving her dream.

East Side Sushi, released on January 23rd 2017, is available to pre-order now through iTunes and the following platforms: Amazon, Google Play, Microsoft Xbox, Sky Store, Vubiquity.
