The Films of Keisuke Kinoshita

November 07, 2012 – November 15, 2012

Universally considered one of the greatest Japanese directors, Keisuke Kinoshita worked almost his entire career for Shochiku, the film studio most devoted to what the Japanese call shomin-geki, stories of everyday life; yet while Kinoshita’s fellow Shochiku director, Yasujiro Ozu, developed a rigorous, austere style that he perfected from film to film, Kinoshita was constantly changing, challenging himself to adapt to new subject matter and ways of storytelling. We are pleased to salute this unheralded master with 15 titles from his extraordinary 50-film career. Series programmed by Richard Peña. Read more »
