The Cinema of Ozu Yasujiro

Histories of the Everyday

Woojeong Joo

Published by Edinburgh University Press

Edinburgh Studies in East Asian Film

One of the best regarded of non-Western film directors, responsible for acknowledged classics like Tokyo Story (1953), Ozu Yasujiro was active during a period of immense turbulence for Japan and its population. This book offers a new interpretation of Ozu's career, from his earliest work in the 1920s up to his death in 1963, focusing on Ozu's depiction of the everyday life and experiences of ordinary Japanese people during a time of depression, war and economic resurgence.
