Just a random note to say that it's been a funny and interesting relation between metheE.word and my page on Tumblr. I like it there too! I actually think few contents fit better there than on the blog, so perhaps you might want to check it for more news. HERE.
Got to watch these two documentaries (see below) few months back and once again last night, because they really impressed me, so now I thought I'd share.
Despite the thematic is not particularly the same - they have nothing to do one with another in terms of story - I guess they are related on the craftsmanship, the discipline, the strive for excellence and ultimately the pursuit for perfection impregnated in that part of the world.
I really appreciated the content and insights learnt in both docs.
Lee Kang-hyo 'Onggi Master' - film about a Korean potter
This documentary tells the story of Lee Kang-hyo’s search for a beautiful
life, through his work with clay and the love of his family. Set against
the backdrop of his South Korean studio, it gives an insight into the
spiritual journey that plays a vital part in his artistic practice.
Jiro Dreams of Sushi
JIRO DREAMS OF SUSHI is the story of 85-year-old Jiro Ono, considered by
many to be the world's greatest sushi chef. He is the proprietor of
Sukiyabashi Jiro, a 10-seat, sushi-only restaurant inauspiciously located in a Tokyo subway station. Despite its humble appearances, it is
the first restaurant of its kind to be awarded a prestigious
three-star Michelin Guide rating, and sushi lovers from around the globe
make repeated pilgrimage, calling months in advance and shelling out
top dollar for a coveted seat at Jiro's sushi bar.
