Chinese Mainland Premiere 中国大陆首映



Set in Kushiro, the North-Eastern port city in Hokkaido, FUEL quietly observes an expert griller Shizuko Nakajima working at one of the original and oldest Robata-yaki restaurants in Japan. While the slow-paced editing is matched with contemplative visuals of slow-cooking, the film makes subtle references to indigenous Ainu culture, as well as envisages environmental issues surrounding the fire and humans in contemporary society.
