Clark to Show Japanese Film Ohayo (Good Morning) October 25

For Immediate Release

October 17, 2002

The Clark Art Institute's fall film series "Yasujiro Ozu and the Architectonics of Film" will continue on Friday, October 25, at 4:00 p.m., with a showing of Ohayo (Good Morning). The 1959 comedy revolves around two boys in a tight-knit suburban neighborhood who take a vow of silence to make their parents buy a TV. Admission is free.

The final film in the series will be An Autumn Afternoon (1962, 112 minutes) on November 1. For more information on film at the Clark, call 413-458-2303, extension 215.

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). For more information call 413-458-2303 or visit www.clarkart.edu.
