Being that some of us on staff just got back from Japan, and one of those staff members quite enjoying a few different varieties of sake, this trailer for "The Birth of Saké" loooks very appealing (not to mention beautiful).

Watch the trailer!

"Tucked away among the letters, diaries, and other ephemera in the Smithsonian's archives lies a trove of rarely seen snapshots of some of the twentieth century's most celebrated artists.
