Archival Screening

Tokkan Kozo (突貫小僧)          

OZU Yasujiro / 22min / 1929 / Streaming available from Mar 1-13, 2021

With live-recording of piano accompaniment provided by Mie Yanashita, recorded at Toy Film Museum, Kyoto, on February 22, 2021. The longest extant version of cine auteur par excellence Yasujiro Ozu features a rambunctious child actor that steals the show. A rewarding watch for its comedic pleasures as well as for the opportunity it presents to recognize that no film is ever lost, just missing.
