Family Circle: The Films of Yasujiro Ozu: Equinox Flower

Thu Apr 27 2017

Seattle Art Museum

Plestcheeff Auditorium

7:30 PM – 9:30 PM

Yasujiro Ozu (1903-63), one of the greatest cinematic artists, finds universal truths in his tender studies of 20th-century Japanese families. Parents and children, lovers and enemies, traditional country folk and modern city dwellers must come to terms with themselves, each other and a few simple truths: life is both disappointing and wonderful; what is, is. Ozu, an exponent of Zen, embraces contemplative stillness, deep laughter, fleeting beauty and the stunning, haiku-like revelations of small gestures. All films in 35mm, in Japanese with English subtitles.
