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 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.

All screenings are at the Whitney Humanities Center Auditorium, 53  
Wall Street.
