Film: “I Was Born, But . . .”

Sunday, January 13, 2019, 2 PM

With live musical accompaniment by Andrew E. Simpson

Join pianist Andrew E. Simpson as he accompanies one of Yasujiro Ozu’s most popular films. The charming comedy I Was Born, But . . . is a blithe portrait of one family’s toils from the rascally perspective of stubborn little boys. Before the screening, Simpson will demonstrate his process for creating live scores for classic silent movies. (Dir.: Yasujiro Ozu, Japan, 1932, 90 min., B&W, 35mm, silent with English intertitles)
