“Imamura began in film as Yasujiro Ozu’s assistant, working most notably on Tokyo Story (1953), before directing his own films which were the anarchic, rough-hewn antithesis of his master’s stately gentility. Imamura was something of an iconoclast, consciously rebelling against Japanese studio structures and the style of Ozu and becoming, along with Nagisa Oshima and Masahiro Shinoda, a key member of the Japanese New Wave.” - Lloyd Hughes (The Rough Guide to Film, 2007)
We're going to explore the cinema of Shohei Imamura throughout this month. A screening and a casual, fun discussion will be the main course at this meetup. You can check the complete filmography here:
