The award-winning indie favorite “East Side Sushi” returns to Tucson for a special run at The Screening Room beginning Friday, October 9. “East Side Sushi” won a special jury award for “Bridging Cultures” at the 2015 Arizona International Film Festival.
Years of working in the food industry have made Juana’s hands fast-very fast. She can slice and dice anything you throw at her with great speed and precision. Juana wants to become a sushi chef, but is unable to because she is deemed the “wrong” race and gender. Against all odds, she embarks on a journey of self-discovery, determined to not let anyone stop her from achieving her dream.
“East Side Sushi tells a compelling and socially-conscious story that is equally tear-inducing and mouth-watering. ” — Rachel Zou, Asia Pacific Arts

Scott Archer Jones Author- THE BIG WHEEL


by Scott Archer Jones

Robko Zlata is sprinting across America, on the run with a call girl-his ex-wife-on a hot red motorcycle. Robko is a thief, and he has stolen the wrong thing, a device that can guarantee immortality. His wrathful target, a corrupt billionaire politician, wants the world’s greatest piece of technology back. Robko’s new worst enemy unleashes his fortune and corporate security in unrelenting pursuit. “Golden Boy” Thomas Steward is asked to follow the money and uncover the thief with massive illegal surveillance. Thomas, morphing into his prey, becomes the most dangerous of hunters. But Thomas could die too. A gang of ex-mercenaries, good at killing, torture, and rape, are hot on the heels of Robko and Thomas. The thugs are ready to murder anyone who knows about the immortality device. Throw in the underground world of thieves and billionaires, drugs and punk clubs, five-star hotels and cheap motels, and Robko and Thomas are in for one hell of a crash. As in the best of plots, nothing

The Big Wheel is a finalist for the NM – Arizona Book Awards as a drama/action novel. There are 5 other great books up, so we won’t hold our breath, but surely a book in a SW contest that has scenes in an illegal L.A. bar will win?
