Film Streams proudly announces Great Directors: Yasujiro Ozu (Apr 21 - Jun 27), a twelve-film retrospective celebrating an artist known for quiet films of great emotional power.
In a career that stretched from the silent era to the dizzying time of progress that visited Japan after World War II, Yasujiro Ozu crafted no fewer than ten films now considered masterpieces. He is perhaps best known for sympathetic portraits of youngsters yearning for independence and elders cast aside by impatient modernizers — often with stars Chishu Ryu and Setsuko Hara.
Communications Director of Film Streams, Patrick Kinney, makes an early morning stop by the KIOS-FM studios for a special edition of "Live & Local" with Mike Hogan.
