Yasujiro Ozu – 
Four Restorations

Filmstill from OCHAZUKE NO AJI (The Flavor of Green Tea Over Rice)

The films of the great Japanese director Yasujiro Ozu (1903-1963) always have discoveries in store, even after repeated viewings - an unmistakable sign of the richness of his films, which is revealed in a very special way in the four recent restorations presented in October. Central motifs and familiar cinematic forms can be found in this small program, as well as unusual genres for Ozu and surprising constellations of characters. Discoveries guaranteed!

In cooperation with the Japan Foundation, Cologne.
