Seasonal Special Happenings

Tokyo-Ga

When: Sat., Dec. 12 2015

One of the key leaders of the New German Cinema, director Wim Wenders has put together a remarkable resume over the course of a career that stretches back to the '60s. The guy has shot movies all over the world and filmed in exotic places such as Berlin, Lisbon, Los Angeles, Cuba, Moscow, Tokyo and Australian outback. With some help from Janus films, the Cleveland Institute of Art Cinematheque pays tribute to the auteur this month in a series dubbed With Portraits Along the Road. The series continues tonight with Tokyo-Ga, a film that chronicles Wenders' journey to Japan to interview movie star Chishu Ryu and cameraman Yuhura Atsuda, both of whom have collaborated with Japanese filmmaker Yasujiro Ozu. The movie screens at 5 p.m. today. Tickets are $9. (Niesel)
