Cinematheque: Kon Ichikawa

"One of the world's greatest directors."--Film Comment

With a career that spans more than half a century and 80 feature films, Kon Ichikawa ranks among Kurosawa, Ozu, and Mizoguchi as one of the great directors of the Japanese cinema. His first major North American retrospective, this 13-film series includes many new 35mm prints, shedding new light on a historic body of work that is often overlooked by Western audiences.
