    Through the unrelenting winter in northern Japan, a small group of workers must brave unusual work conditions to bring to life a 2,000-year-old tradition known as sake. A cinematic documentary, The Birth of Sake is a visually immersive experience of a almost unknown world in which large sacrifices must be made for the survival of a time-honoured brew.
