Next Thursday, February 3rd, is the first day of the Ozu festival. They will be showing I Was Born, But ..., a silent comedy that will be performed with a live score. Here's the synopsis: When Yoshi moves into his boss's neighborhood, his two young children find themselves mercilessly bullied. They fight back, claiming inspiration from their authoritarian father, only to be shocked one day when they observe his obsequious manner in front of his boss. Determined to rid him of his self-demeaning ways, the boys go on a hunger strike.
I'll be buying tickets tonight for myself and shadowdaddy. Speak up if you want me to get a ticket for you! As for the rest of the series ... I'll be posting my schedule for it tomorrow.
