Yasujiro Ozu Film Showing
Monday, July 26th, 2010 - 6 pm. Hayward Main Library, 835 C St. @ Mission Blvd., Hayward, CA (2 blocks from Hayward BART)
Renee, the secretly well-educated Parisian concierge from Muriel Barbery’s novel, The Elegance of the Hedgehog, admires the Japanese filmmaker Yasujiro Ozu (1903-1963). “For the first time in my life, the Art of the cinema made me laugh and cry as real entertainment should,” Renee exclaims. Whether or not you have read The Elegance of the Hedgehog (the Mostly Literary Fiction Book Group’s May selection), find out why Renee is wild about Yasujiro Ozu. Join us for a showing of one of Ozu’s artful films that helped to establish his success and long-lasting influence. Call 510-881-7700 for info.
