Japan | 118 min | NR | DCP | Dir. Yasujiro Ozu
Later in his career, Ozu started becoming increasingly sympathetic with the younger generation, a shift that was cemented in Equinox Flower, his gorgeously detailed first color film, about an old-fashioned father and his newfangled daughter (Janus). UW Emeritus professor and co-author of Film Art, David Bordwell, will speak before the film and have a Q&A after the film.
"In 'Equinox Flower,' a Japanese film by the old master Yasujiro Ozu, there is this sequence of shots:..This sequence of timed movement and cutting is as perfect as any music ever written, any dance, any poem." - Roger Ebert
