Series - The Films of Kinuyo Tanaka at NWFF + The Beacon
(Kinuyo Tanaka, Japan, 1955, 102 min, in Japanese with English subtitles)
Devised by the Directors Guild of Japan, The Moon Has Risen is based on a screenplay jointly written by Yasujiro Ozu and Ryosuke Saito, and is Kinuyo Tanakas second feature film as a director. She is also a member of the cast for this enchanting love story told from a uniquely feminine perspective, which follows the romantic fortunes of three sisters leading tranquil lives in Japans ancient capital Nara during late autumn.
Tanakas direction is enhanced by the participation of several of Ozus regular collaborators, such as Chishu Ryu who plays the sisters father, and Takanobu Saito who composed the score. Other main cast members include Hisako Yamane, Yoko Sugi, Mie Kitahara, and Shoji Yasui, who adopted the name of his character in this film, his motion picture debut, as his stage name.

Ticketing, concessions, cinemas, restrooms, and our public edit lab are located on Northwest Film Forum's ground floor, which is wheelchair accessible. We have a limited number of assistive listening devices available for programs hosted in our larger theater, Cinema 1. These devices are maintained by the Technical Director, and can be requested at the ticketing and concessions counter.
The Forum does NOT have assistive devices for the visually impaired, and is not (yet) a scent-free venue. Our commitment to increasing access for our audiences is ongoing, and we welcome all public input on the subject!
