A Remarkable Story
15 December 2013 | by (Illinois) – See all my reviews

Sriracha is a remarkable story of a fiercely loved product, the man behind the most famous version of the sauce and the culture that surrounds it. You don't have to be a fan of spicy sauce to enjoy this film. Sriracha is beautifully shot and masterfully told. Director Griffin Hammond reveals the story behind the sauce and shares the journey of the man behind the rooster, David Tran.

Hammond's overwhelmingly successful Kickstarter campaign ($21,000 raised, $5,000 asked for) allowed him to add certain elements to the film that provide a greater depth to the narrative. He was able to travel to Si Racha, Thailand to get a first-hand look at Thai culture and where this iconic sauce originated. Hammond also acquired old news footage of the Panamanian freighter (and company namesake) Huy Fong that carried David Tran from Vietnam to Hong Kong.

One thing you won't find in this film is any mention of the controversy surrounding the Huy Fong Foods factory and the city of Irwindale, CA where the hot sauce is made. According to Hammond, the complaints sprung up as he was completing the editing process. However, depending on where the story goes, Hammond has not yet ruled out an epilogue.
