Join PSSCA for our second fundraiser movie event, featuring the Japanese film Dad’s Lunch Box by Masakazu Fukatsu. This wonderful, heartwarming film was inspired by the real-life story of a Japanese father who, for the three years his daughter spent at high school, prepared a daily bento lunch box for her – leading to delicious, interesting, or offbeat creations. In all cases, he put an effort into equipping his daughter with sustenance for school….and life. Based on a viral tweet that was shared 80,000 times and liked by more than 260,000. This movie will be shown in Japanese with English subtitles.

Also featuring an opening short film, Side-by-Side: A Beer Collaboration.

Japanese, Danish, and Portland brewmasters meet and discuss their respective styles and passions for the art of brewing beer. A 6-minute film with an introduction by Portland filmmaker, Elijah Sprints.
