Sriracha, short documentary directed by Griffin Hammond
–Review by Ashley Linne
Who knew a condiment had a cult following and its own movie? Sriracha is a 33-minute documentary about—you guessed it—Sriracha hot sauce.
The film documents a condiment love like no other, and reveals the backstory of the delicious “rooster sauce.” In the United States, Sriracha is ubiquitous in Asian and other restaurants, chef’s kitchens, and college cafeterias. In this film, we learn that the company, Huy Fong Foods, makes only hot sauce; that they have virtually no online or official social media presence; and that they have never advertised their product.
The soundtrack of the documentary contains songs various artists have written as odes to Sriracha. The interviewees have a deep appreciation for the sauce and one even compares collecting hot sauces to collecting cigars. Some carry it with them or keep a bottle at their desk at work. People put the sauce on and in everything from scrambled eggs to soup to candy. People get Sriracha tattoos. Fans have created a Sriracha festival. For many people, Sriracha adds the flavor of life—to the tune of 20 million bottles sold a year. read more…
