Ozu and His Afterlives Film Series
This December marks the 110th anniversary of Yasujiro Ozu’s birth and the 50th anniversary of his death. To commemorate the occasion, the Film Society of Lincoln Center is proud to present the U.S. premieres of brand-new restorations of two exquisite color films by Ozu,Equinox Flower (1958) and An Autumn Afternoon (1962). To pay tribute to his enduring influence, the series also includes seven films by contemporary directors—from Jim Jarmusch to Pedro Costa, who once called Ozu’s films “documentaries about mankind”—that bear some trace, obvious or subtle, of the great Japanese master. All are films that in their own way—to borrow a phrase from the director Claire Denis—grew under the shade of Ozu.
JAPAN SOCIETY FILM
Yasujiro Ozu’s LATE AUTUMN (1960)
December 12, 2013 marks the 110th anniversary of Yasujiro Ozu’s birth and the 50thanniversary of his passing. Japan Society is celebrating the late master with a screening of his moving late period family drama Late Autumn, which is part of our ongoing film series in honor of the late writer/critic Donald Richie.
To make it a birthday party, we are hosting a raffle of great Ozu prizes for all ticketholders, including exclusive commemorative materials from Shochiku, as well as a special reception afterwards.
I hope you will consider helping spread the word about this unique event to your students. If you are interested in group tickets (for groups of 10 or more) please email me for more details.
