When their parents will not buy them a color television, two young boys stage a protest by refusing to utter a word—even a morning greeting. Soon, this breach of decorum stirs up trouble in their status-obsessed suburban community. Ozu’s playful and charming satire of materialism marked an early venture into color filmmaking.
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.
