The opening classic in the Metcalfe Auditorium at 2pm is the digital restoration of the classic Japanese silent film, Passing Fancy, directed by the cinema master, Yasujiro Ozu.
The film has been described as “….a humorous and heartfelt study of a close, if fraught, father-son relationship. With an ever more sophisticated visual style and understanding of fragile human relationships, Ozu seamlessly weaves rib-tickling comedy and weighty family drama for this distinguished precursor to a brilliant career.”
This film shall have live keyboard accompaniment by Australia’s outstanding silent film musician, Mauro Colombis. Tickets are $25 / $20 concession and Friend of the Library.
