The Opening night of Cinémathèque 2017 featuring a brand new restoration of Ozu’s Tokyo Story.

Tokyo Story

Tokyo Story to launch the 2017 Adelaide Cinematheque.

When an elderly couple travel to a rapidly-rebuilding Tokyo to visit their children, they are met with unexpected indifference, ingratitude and selfishness. As the vastly different priorities of pre- and post-war Japan collide, Yasujiro Ozu’s materpiece deepens into a sublime meditation on family, ambition and mortality. Tokyo Story is a subtle yet overwhelmingly emotional drama from one of Japan’s greatest directors whose masterful eye and scrupulous attention to character has influenced countless filmmakers around the world and is listed as one of the finest films ever made (Halliwell’s, Sight and Sound).

IFFA: BRICK AND MIRROR (KHESHT VA AYENEH)

A seminal film of the ‘first Iranian New Wave,’ Ebrahim Golestan’s Brick and Mirror is essential viewing for those seeking to understand the influences of this period of film history on filmmakers as acclaimed and diverse as Kiarostami, Panahi and co. A minimalist tale of a taxi driver left with a baby in his back seat after the mother abandons the two of them, this classic branches out into a biting social commentary of Iranian society in the 60s.
