Four Films by Donald Richie

Donald Richie, who was born in Lima, Ohio in 1924 and died in Tokyo in February, did more than anybody to introduce Japanese cinema to the West. A revered film scholar who penned such groundbreaking works as The Japanese Film (1959), The Films of Akira Kurosawa (1965), and Ozu: His Life and Films (1974), Richie was also an occasional maker of his own experimental short films. Though they are little known and rarely shown, tonight, as a tribute to their author, we will screen four of them: Wargames (1962), Life (1965), Dead Youth (1967), and Five Filosophical Fables (1967). Made in Japan, they tend to be morality tales depicting rituals of life, love, sex, and death. No one under 18 admitted!
