An elderly couple travels to Tokyo to visit their grown children, only to find their offspring too busy to give them much attention. Upon their return home, tragedy strikes, and the children must reckon with their relationship to their parents. Widely cited as one of the greatest films of all time, Tokyo Story exemplifies Ozu's ability to channel the small dramas of everyday life into a profound portrait of the human condition.

Shown in conjunction with the film course Ozu and the Crucible of Modernity, this screening will be introduced by the course's instructor, Paul Wright, Ph.D.
