"As gorgeous and unsettling as a Cézanne ... Still has the power to astonish, disrupt, and shatter hearts." -Village Voice
This profoundly stirring evocation of elemental humanity and universal heartbreak by the unparalleled master Yasujiro Ozu follows an aging couple's journey to visit their grown children in bustling postwar Tokyo. A tale of family and change during a moment of deep societal and individual transition, it remains without question one of cinema's most profound works of art. (Japan, 1953, 137m, 35mm, Janus Films)


ABOUT THE SERIES:
Great movies are works of visual poetry. As with other forms of poetry, our understanding, appreciation, and enjoyment of movies can be deepened and enhanced by learning how to see (and read) them better. The St. John's College Film Institute is dedicated to cultivating the skills necessary to become better readers of great movies, and provides these public screenings-each in the best screening format available-to celebrate the work of eight of cinema's essential artists.
