SANTA CRUZ, CA --  On Sunday, September 29, 2013, Filmmaker Kerwin Berk will host a film screening of his new film “Infinity & Chashu Ramen” at the Rio Theatre in Santa Cruz. The show will start at 1:30 pm and also feature another of Mr. Berk’s films: “The Virtues of Corned Beef Hash” about a Nisei WWII veteran who has spent the past 60-years trying to bury the past. A young reporter discovers him while trying to research a story about the aftermath of the War.

“Infinity . . .” is about a mischievous, 400-year-old spirit who has watched over his neighborhood for generations. He is charged with showing a young female spirit the ropes. Together, the two wonder in and out of unsuspecting resident’s lives trying to keep the universe running smoothly.

Mr. Berk, the star of both films Mr. Hiroshi Kashiwagi, and some of the cast and crew will be on hand for a question-and-answer period after the showings.

Proceeds from the event will help support the Japanese Cultural Fair. Tickets are $10 in advance at Yamashita Fish Market in Watsonville, Akira Sushi Restaurant in Santa Cruz, and online. Tickets will also be available at the door for $12 on the day of the event. Doors will open at 1:00 pm. People are also encouraged to patronize Akira Sushi at 1222 Soquel Avenue as it is committed to donate a percentage of its proceeds that day to the JCF.
