Ozu Yasujiro Retrospective
Universally considered to be one of the great masters of Japanese (or any) cinema, Ozu Yasujiro had a remarkable career that crossed five decades. This weekly retrospective, co-sponsored by the Council on East Asian Studies and the Cinema at the Whitney, will provide a rare opportunity to see films from all periods of Ozu’s career, drawing attention to his playful humor as well as his formal genius and profound understanding of shifting family relations. All films will be screened in new 35mm prints.
