“Yasujirō Ozu” by Chris Ware
In the fall of 2008, Cinefamily presented an ambitious retrospective of the films of Yasuhiro Ozu, one of the most revered of all Japanese directors. Like a printmaker, Ozu obsessively reworked his themes until they reached transcendent heights of perfection: the domestic life of everyday people, their rituals and emotional transformations.
Chris Ware is the artist behind Quimby the Mouse, Acme Novelty Library, and “Jimmy Corrigan - the Smartest Kid on Earth”, which received the Guardian First Book Award in 2001. The latest issue of his long running series, Acme Novelty Library, came out in November 2010.
