Film Analysis Seminar - Yasujiro Ozu [In-Person Only]
Wednesdays in April from 6:30-8pm
(April 5, 12, 19, and 26)
As part of our ongoing efforts to make educational opportunities as accessible as possible for our community, Film Analysis Seminar will be free.
There will be 12 spots available, on a first-come, first-served basis. If one month of the seminar fills up, just email the facilitator, Han Ha (email@example.com), to be added to a waitlist for the following month. Each month focuses on a different director or film topic, and registration for each months topic is separate.
Please note that if you confirm your participation, make sure that you can attend at least three of the four meetings for that month.

About the seminar:
Film Analysis Seminar is a four-week-per-topic free program hosted by Northwest Film Forum that provides participants with a chance to dive deeper into films on a philosophical and critical level. In this class, students will discuss carefully curated films using the Socratic Method, which is a form of learning based on asking and answering questions. Through ongoing conversation, the program hopes to nurture art appreciation as well as communities of movie lovers.
In April 2023, we will be discussing the films of Yasujiro Ozu, one of Japan's greatest directors. We will be looking at four of his influential films - Tokyo Story, Late Spring, Early Summer and I was born, but - that explore the dynamics of family life, marriage, and gradual change. Through this, we hope to have a better understanding of Ozu's intimate cinematic language and the ways that it brilliantly and subtly portrays the human condition.

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!
