Yuzo Kawashima x Ayako Wakao
Just ahead of his centenary, Japan Society presents three brand-new 4K restorations of director Yuzo Kawashima’s collaborations with legendary actress Ayako Wakao. Known for his acidic urban comedies and satires, the highly modern Kawashima (1918-1963) left behind 51 films, all of which remain criminally underseen in the U.S. These bold Kawashima gems featuring the luminous Wakao, full of playful visual surprises and sharp social commentary, offer a rare opportunity to reintroduce a master filmmaker who bridges the gap between the classical Japanese cinema of the 1950s and the New Wave of the 1960s.
“I know of no other director who reveals so much of himself in his work.”
— Shohei Imamura
“Kawashima is a director whose non-existence in the West is a sorrowful grievance which ought to be redressed.”
— Slant Magazine
