Japanese filmmaker Hirokazu Kore-eda ranks among the best-known and most acclaimed directors in world cinema today. Each of his films is marked by a subtle dramatic touch, a gentle yet assured feeling for the profundity and emotional charge of everyday life, and an enduring fascination with the role of the family in contemporary Japanese society. Kore-eda has varied his approach to exploring his signature themes, resulting in a consistently touching and truly humanist oeuvre. On the occasion of the theatrical release of his 2018 Palme d’Or–winning Shoplifters (opening November 23 from Magnolia Pictures), the Film Society will present a selection of our favorite films by the Japanese master.
