Friday, December 6, 7 PM

After feeling insulted by his family yet again, Tora-san leaves Shibamata for the city of Ozu in Shikoku where he has a chance meeting with the descendent of a local daimyo (feudal lord). Lonely and in the last years of his life, the Lord seeks to reconcile with his deceased son’s wife Mariko (Kyoko Maya) whom he has never met and is living somewhere in Tokyo. Moved, Tora-san takes on the near-impossible task of finding Mariko and benefits from a previous act of kindness. New 4K restoration.

1977, 99 min., DCP, color, in Japanese with English subtitles. Directed by Yoji Yamada. With Kiyoshi Atsumi, Chieko Baisho, Kyoko Maya.

Tickets: $14/$11 seniors, students and persons with disabilities, $5 members.
