Erik Shirai

Erik Shirai is a New York-based cinematographer and filmmaker whose work can be seen on National Geographic, PBS, and on Anthony Bourdain’s Emmy-winning No Reservations, as well as in a variety of narrative and documentary features.

Birth of Saké, which won him a Best Documentary Director Special Jury Mention at Tribeca, exemplifies his rigorous and artful approach.
