What are simple and amazing solutions that can transform our reality today? The documentary Final Straw journeys through Japan, Korea, and the United States to change our perception of food by presenting ways of livelihood once forgotten.
"Walking away from salaried jobs in Seoul and Silicon Valley, the film's directors (Patrick Lydon and Suhee Kang) spent four years creating a film that will leave you inspired, happier, and perhaps even motivated to make a few changes in your own lifestyle.”
With beautiful interviews, incredible landscapes, and an original soundtrack, the film shares a new path towards sustainability and livelihood. Final Straw focuses on the cultural and ecological philosophies of farmers who are following teachings of Masanobu Fukuoka and his book "One Straw Revolution."
