Children in the Wind

Friday, May 10, 2024 at 7:00 pm

Location: Redstone Theater


Dir. Hiroshi Shimizu. 1937, 86 mins. 35mm print courtesy of the National Film Archive of Japan. In Japanese with live English subtitles. With Reikichi Kawamura, Mitsuko Yoshikawa, Masao Hayama, Takeshi Sakamoto, Bakudan-kozo, Fumiko Okamura. In Shimizu’s most renowned and adored film in Japan, the idyllic country life of two brothers, older Zenta (Hayama) and younger Sanpei (Bakudan-kozo), is suddenly thrown into crisis one summer when their father is wrongly arrested for embezzlement. A frank, unsentimental portrait of innocence fading into experience, as well as a shimmering evocation of a Japanese provincial village, Children in the Wind counts among the great cinematic treatments of childhood.
