The 1950s were the golden age of Japanese film, peaking in the 60s. Cinematographers made sense of, and communicated, the re-building of Japan through unique narratives and movie direction.
With an introduction to the series by Peter Munford, Asian film enthusiast, film-programmer and host of the Satori Screenings in Derby, Open Eye Gallery will be showing three classic films of the Golden Age of Japanese cinema.
3 Mar 2015 – Stray Dog (1949)
17 Mar 2015 – Good Morning (1959)
31 Mar 2015 – Pigs & Battleships (1961)
Dir: Yasujiro Ozu / 1959 / 93m
In a small suburb on the outskirts of Tokyo young brothers Minoru and Isamu take a vow of silence after their parents refuse to buy them a television set. Ozu’s reputation as the master portrayer of Japanese family life remains unchallenged over fifty years after his death and Good Morning is one of his finest films, a hugely charming comedy drama full of wit and insight into inter-generational relations.
