  • Description

Celebrating Japanese Cinema. Ozu’s acclaimed drama

The elderly Shukishi and his wife, Tomi, take the long journey from their small seaside village to visit their adult children in Tokyo. Their elder son, Koichi, a doctor, and their daughter, Shige, a hairdresser, don’t have much time to spend with their aged parents, and so it falls to Noriko, the widow of their younger son who was killed in the war, to keep her in-laws company.

Celebrating Japanese Cinema
Thanks to funding from the BFI Film Audience Network, we were due to celebrate Japanese Cinema with a season of films in 2020 and then 2021, so we are glad to finally be able to do so. Celebrating some classics of Japanese cinema and their most iconic directors. This season is a great opportunity to see these films on the big screen.
