Clark to Show Japanese Film Tokyo Story October 18

For Immediate Release

October 08, 2002

The Clark Art Institute's fall film series "Yasujiro Ozu and the Architectonics of Film" will continue on Friday, October 18, at 4:00 p.m. with a showing of Tokyo Story. The 1953 film, considered director Ozu's masterpiece, tells the story of an elderly couple traveling from their small seaside town to visit their grown children in Tokyo. Admission is free.

Upcoming films in the series are: Ohayo (1959, 93 minutes) on October 25, and An Autumn Afternoon (1962, 112 minutes) on November 1.  The film series is offered in connection with the exhibition Tadao Ando: Architect, on view at the Clark through April 27. Tadao Ando, the winner of the prestigious Pritzker Architecture Prize and the recipient of the 2002 American Institute of Architects Gold Medal, is one of the most celebrated architects working today. Ando's sensitivity to landscape and the contemplative nature of his interior spaces led the Institute to select him as architect for its upcoming expansion and campus enhancement.

The Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute is located at 225 South Street in Williamstown, Massachusetts.  The galleries are open Tuesday through Sunday, 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Gallery admission is $10 (members, students, and children free).
