The films of Ozu are filled with people walking through alleys and hallways: the in-between spaces of modern life. This is where Ozu resides. In the transitory. It’s what he values as a filmmaker. Alleys are not an opportunity for suspense but for passage.
*Passageways is made up of Ozu’s final six films: Equinox Flower (Higanbana), Good Morning (Ohayo), Floating Weeds (Ukigusa), Late Autumn (Akibiyori), The End of Summer (Kohayagawa-ke no aki), and An Autumn Afternoon (Sanma no aji)
Music: A1 by Ólafur Arnalds & Nils Frahm
