Sweet, Sexy Ocean: A Short Foodie Doc about Uni from Director Alex Finden

Sweet Sexy Ocean posterIf you love the magnificently rich complexity of uni (sea urchin) as much as we do here at Cinefoodie, then you’ll thrill to the sights and sounds of Alex Finden’s mesmerizing short documentary about those conservation-minded few who gather and savor the spiniest and most delectable members of the phylum Echinodermata, which also includes sea stars and sea cucumbers.  Featuring hypnotic close-ups of uni freshly scooped from its shell, fascinating footage of how uni is processed and interviews with red sea urchin divers and aficionados such as “the urchin king” Pete Halmay, of San Diego, Sweet, Sexy Ocean explores the allure of sustainably harvesting and celebrating what many connoisseurs describe as the foie gras of the sea. Sweet, Sexy Ocean will play the Sacramento Food Film Festival 2014 on Sunday March 30, 4-6PM.
