A Story of Floating Weeds with live score by Aono Jikken Ensemble

July 11

Japan | 1934 | 86 Minutes | Yasujirō Ozu

Aono Jikken Ensemble presents a new live music/sound score – a mixture of traditional Japanese music, experimental soundscapes, klezmer, and African folk influences – for master Japanese director Yasujiro Ozu’s silent classic, the story of a down-on-its-luck Kabuki troupe putting on a performance in a small town. Presented with live bilingual Benshi narration, a Japanese silent film tradition.
