Thursday Night Film: Tokyo Story (1953)

Tokyo Story is a heartbreaking tale of the ever-evolving parent-child relationship. Considered director Yasujiro Ozu’s masterpiece, Tokyo Story was shot from cameras low to the ground, the point of view one would have when sitting on a traditional Japanese tatami mat.  Don’t miss this opportunity to see a film renowned for both its universal themes of family and the ties that bind as well as its cinematic perfection. Japanese, subtitled in English. Running time: 136 min.; NR
