Fortissimo Films Promotes Love Fest
With Kampai! For The Love Of Sake

Kampai! For The Love Of Sake
Documentary Films continues to demonstrate unprecedented growth in audiences across the globe for all subject matter. For international buyers at AFM, Fortissimo Films has acquired the worldwide rights outside Japan for Director Mirai Konishi's feature documentary, Kampai! For The Love Of Sake, and will showcase first exclusive footage to during the AFM.

Chairman Michael J. Werner, stated: "We are very excited about Mirai's take on the universe of Sake, which is little known or understood outside a small circle of experts. Yet worldwide when we are at a Japanese restaurant, we are confronted with the dual dilemmas of choosing house Sake or bottled Sake from a long list with various sweetness levels and prices; and then hot or cold? With Kampai! For The Love Of Sake, we believe that we have another food-related feature film with global commercial and festival award potential." Fortissimo Films has previously enjoyed commercial and Festival success with a number of iconic, food-related documentaries including Super Size Me, Food Inc., Jiro Dreams Of Sushi, and Foodies.

The film is Executive Produced by Nao Komai and SYNCA Creations CEO Soojun Bae, and will be presented In Association with Fortissimo Films, with Fortissimo's Chairman Michael J. Werner, and its Managing Director Nelleke Driessen.

In Kampai! For the Love of Sake, the director will explore the lives and journeys of three distinctive Sake aficionados and experts, through which we come to understand the rich, complex, and spectacular world of this special drink which has a long and deep history in Japanese culture. The documentary features Phillip Harper, a British native and long-time resident of Japan who is the first non-Japanese Toji Sake brewer; American John Gauntner considered to be one of the world's leading Sake journalists; and Kousuke Kuji, the young President of a century-old Japanese Sake brewery who is responsible for managing the overseas expansion of the brewery's precious output.
