AMN X Focus/Filmhuis Cavia: The Flavor of Green Tea Over Rice (1952) 

In this month’s collaboration with Focus Filmtheatre Arnhem and Filmhuis Cavia Amsterdam, we are presenting a film out of Yasujiro Ozu’s oeuvre that rarely gets the credit it deserves. One of the more nuanced works found in his filmography, The Flavor of Green Tea Over Rice (1952) is a film about Taeko and Mokichi, a married couple who have begun questioning whether their differences, both of personality and class upbringing, are perhaps overshadowing the feelings that got them together in the first place. A visit of Taeko’s niece Setsuko ends up bringing their conflict to the surface.

Join us for this classic tale out of Japan’s Post War era in a gorgeous 4K restoration provided by the production company Shochiku, in collaboration with The Japan Foundation.

After the screening in Arnhem on the 18th May, there will be an after talk with guest speaker Miyuki Okuyama, an Arnhem-based Japanese artist and photographer, to discuss on the storytelling style and cinematography of the Japanese film master Ozu in relation to the reading of family dynamics in Japanese context at that time.
