Jiro Dreams of Sushi: Film as Literature
Please offer a clear and thorough response for each question.
1. Apprentices and apprenticeships are common in the realm of Japanese sushi. Identify a discipline in which apprenticeships do not currently exist, and propose the implementation of an apprentice-master system.
2. This documentary is devoid of direct narration. Why do you think the filmmakers did this? What is the effect?
3. Psychologists define flow the mental state of operation in which a person performing an activity is fully immersed in a feeling of energized focus, full involvement, and enjoyment in the process of the activity. It is clear that sushi preparation and service provides Jiro with this sensation. What hobby, potential career path, or interest provides you with this sensation?
